November Angst: Paper Tigers and Minotaurs

I was up last night for two hours worrying about the multitude of tasks and responsibilities I have to juggle in the next few weeks. Although understandable, it is not clear to me that it is in anyway necessary. A big part of the problem is that I exaggerate in my imagination how much time and energy certain tasks will take. Some are indeed time sinks whereas others are needless sappers of emotional energy. Some really aren’t worth any stress at all. There are, in short, paper tigers and Minotaurs and it’s best to save brain and physical energy for the latter.
