Is persistence the best resource? Even better than talent?
How would one live if approval is no longer needed?
How does one fix things so hurrying or rushing is not a problem?
By not putting things off? Is life like sports in that “Every play makes someone happy.” Why use positive language? How do I set a stress alarm so I’ll notice and relax? Does doing something constructive help dissolve worry and guilt
and give meaning in return? Why blame or complain? Does it give an excuse for whatever? How does giving an excuse make one appear?
Are we usually tempted to overestimate the significance of our actions when things are going well and want to do just the opposite when things go badly? Do we need to be tempted to do this or is it automatic? Is it that reality sometimes hurts, and our identities make all the right excuses?
