One of the most important maxims to have, I think. Need to remind myself of this all the time. Especially important when things happen that trigger my old friend adrenaline and it seeps into the more mundane aspects of my day to day. I ask myself if I really want this stress response now, if I actually need it, or if it’s just the addiction. Because that’s all it is. The less “productive” I try to be, the less stress I put myself under, the more satisfied I am with what I actually do, the more things of value I am capable of making. All around yay-ness.
