How are you using your (limited) energy?

This too shall pass. 

CJ McClanahan

In the moment, the issue that has us all worked up seems so very important.

In retrospect, it rarely is.

In his thoughtful book, A Time to Build, author Yuval Levin says:

Short-termism is often a function of unstructured thinking, which leaves us adrift in the moment and unable to see beyond it. It contributes to what social scientists call “recency bias”: the tendency to assign undue importance to what has just happened or is currently happening, losing perspective regarding both the past and the future.”

We’ve only got so much emotional energy available. Let’s not waste it in trivial matters.
