it all gets done. the t's are crossed, the i's are dotted, the source of anxiety comes out of the dark corner into the light and suddenly looks a lot less intimidating. i plug away and suddenly the paper is finished and the concert is over and it's done. it's all done. and all the things i was worrying about yesterday are finished and there was no need to worry in the first place.
how about this: i subtract anxiety from the equation, continue the rate of productivity, and find a little joy in my work, as advised by ecclesiastes?
"So I decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to find satisfaction in work. Then I realized that these pleasures are from the hand of God. For who can eat or enjoy anything apart from him? God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him."
(the above found in chapter 2 of said book of the Bible).
