Seth Godin had an interesting post on anxiety this morning. I'll just quote the whole thing here, because it's really short:
Anxiety is nothing...
but repeatedly re-experiencing failure in advance. What a waste.
Seth is right.
I'm living under a crushing anxiety right now. It's making my insides hurt. It's pretty bad. I'll be honest and say that I'm not far from calling the doctor. I don't know what he could actually do about it.
But Seth's blog post added some perspective. That's what I was going to write about today. I might post on that later. I haven't failed yet. Failure is coming, but it's not here yet. I'm experiencing it in advance over and over ever minute of the day.
I guess I should stop though. It's definitely not getting me anywhere. But how do you stop being anxious?
