What Can You Do About It?

I've been building up a long list of things that's been stressing me out lately, and it's occurred to me that the list will keep getting longer if I let it. However, what can I really do about a sad economy, imminent threats to my job, unrest in the Middle East, rising gas prices, earthquakes, tsunamis, or meltdowns? Bupkis.

So here's what I can control:
  • What I say
  • What I do
Kind of focuses the attention, doesn't it? I've got a job to do, I've got a conference to run, and am damned privileged to have both. Might as well shut up and do my best with the things I can influence or do. The rest of the world will unfold the way it (or God) wills.
