Wise guide: On worry

Don't waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours and ages that will follow it. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

How many hours of your life do you spend worrying? Could you try for a week to focus only on the moment at hand, and see that as the wisest preparation for the unknowable future?

I love this quote! I worry way too much, so much so that I realized I have generalized anxiety (I went to the doc about this a couple of years ago). I hope by quitting my very stressful job I can get rid of all worries (most of my worries) associated with that.

well, if you don't have anything to REALLY worry about this might be true, otherwise the moment is just that. it will pass and the "problem" will still not have a solution. when there are actual issues that need to be delt with so that the future is as secure as it can be for those who will be effected, focusing on the moment is sort of selfish, don't you think?

This reminds of the quote: If you've got one foot in yesterday and one foot in tomorrow, you're in a perfect position to piss all over today.
