I didn’t plan to write about this today, but no worries.
In therapy, we often talk about reducing worry. A lot of people believe that worry is an essential part of planning. They confuse worry with planning and have trouble separating the two.
I suggest to people that

- worry doesn’t help with anything, including planning.

I didn’t plan on sleeping late this morning, but I did. I’m not going to worry about that, either. I’m just going to quickly find a video for this post, publish it, and get ready for work.
I always plan to thank everybody who helps me create these posts and who reads them. These days, I’m not worrying about how I express my gratitude — I just do it.
