Your Occasional Stoic — Cares from Without Distract You. Stop.

Cares from without distract you. Stop, take leisure, then, to add something to your knowledge; be done with vacillation, and avoid the other error. Those who are dead to life are those who, by their activities, weary themselves in life, and have no settled aim to which they may direct, once and for all, their every desire and project.

Meditations 2:7

Hold on. Take a step back, you’re getting ahead of yourself, you’re worrying about that which you can’t control. Stop. Remember what you’re here to do. Do it.
