One of my past goals went somewhere along the lines of
"When I'm somewhere, be there."
By that I mean --
it's not enough to be physically present,
I must be mentally present as well.
When I'm a meeting for alkdfjalwiealva0,
then I'm there and
not thinking about fijierjfalewjq.
I've found that the converse must hold true as well.
If I'm not there, don't worry about it yet.
If three papers are due within the span of one week
but it's still a month away,
don't stress out about it yet.
It's going to be OK.
