Stress Revisited.

Stress primarily comes from not taking action over something that you can have some control over.

Interesting words from Jeff Bezos, and very true as well.

Procrastination is the mother of stress, and by ensuring that you don’t procrastinate on the things that you can address in your life, you can remove stress easily.

Of course, it’s not always obvious what those things should be, but if you think hard enough, you’ll get there.

And what is interesting, is that if you work to take action on what is causing stress, you do not necessarily need to “solve” the problem entirely to benefit from a reduction in stress. The simple fact that you are taking action and making positive progress can be enough. It provides a sense of agency in your life.
