What do we do with all the information that goes into our heads daily. We are constantly bombarded with headlines from the TV, Radio, Internet, Friends, and Family. The sources of this information use a great deal of psychology to design it so that it toils with our emotions and makes us go find sources of the information and ultimately leads to advertising money for the news source and hopefully increased sales for the sponsor.
I used to be guilty of getting all worked up about it even until the point of going half crazy. I still do from time to time. I listen to a podcast daily called the Survival Podcast by Jack Spirko. One of the things he mentions is “Proactive Apathy” which is a total lack of interest over that which you cannot control, with full focus and effort applied to that which you can control.
So before getting all hot and bothered ask yourself the following questions:
How does this affect me?
How can I change this?
If it doesn’t affect you, then don’t worry about it. If you can’t change it, then don’t worry about it.
In summary only worry about the things that you have a direct influence over. If it doesn’t fall into the #GSD category set it free.
