Point to Ponder
Stress does not change the result—it just messes up the journey.
When “distress” (negative stress) or “misstress” (hidden stress) is extreme or chronic, it can suppress immune system function, to say nothing of wasted opportunities and communication discord. Any or all of that “messes up the journey.”
Implement the 20:80 Rule that says:
Only 20% of any negative impact to your brain and body from a stressful event is due to the event or situation itself; 80% is due to your perception of the event and the weight you give to it. While you cannot prevent everything, you can learn to manage the 80% successfully.
