The secret to an easy life?

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Some people like to turn every minor problem into a major drama, presumably because they’re bored and want something to get excited about. Personally I’ve found that 90% of problems solve themselves if you just ignore them, and the exceptions are usually obvious. For example, if you’re late for a meeting most people will have forgotten in a few weeks, but if you car tires are worn out they’re not going to magically fix themselves. Trashing your tires trying to get to the meeting faster will just turn a minor problem into a major one.
