Focus on what you can control

I continue to notice that the smartest, healthiest, most successful and well-adjusted people have a consistent  habit: they focus on the what they can control.

They’re still pissed off when someone cuts them off in traffic, their basements flood, or their flights get canceled.

But their reflex habit is to expend a disproportionately small amount of energy on the “what’s wrong with this situation”, and quickly get to the “what am I gonna do about it”.
