If you can’t improve it, spending time on it wastes your time

There are a lot of things worth paying attention to and spending time on trying to affect.

If you can’t or won’t do anything about something you don’t like, it doesn’t improve your life to worry about it or to take time away from something you like or can do something about.

You can call it “choosing your battles” or “discretion is the better part of valor.”

If you’re taking time from something you enjoy for something you don’t that you can’t or know you won’t do anything about, you’re choosing to make your life worse. It’s not worth it.

Ask yourself

Will I do anything to improve this now?
