Worrying about the future excuses us from doing what needs to be done in this moment.
It is a distraction from the work that is in front of us.
Worrying is a means of procrastinating.
When we worry, we stay stuck.
We fail to act.
Action demands optimism.
Action requires hope.
Worrying hinders our progress because it destroys our optimism and and steals our hope.
But, if we can pull ourselves back from our worries and bring minds into this moment, focusing on the work at hand, we may come to find that our worries begin to dissipate.
Because, progress tends to give us fewer things to worry about.
