Dichotomy of Control


Split stuffs into those in which you have control and those on which you don’t. Don’t be emotionally impacted by the later, as it won’t change anything. Accept it and focus on what you have control on.

It may needs to struggle against the fundamental attribution error.

If you plan to go outside and it is raining, you can feel bad about it and do nothing, or you can acknowledge this feeling and move on with it.

Or if you have to go somewhere on a bike and it is windy. You can complain about the wind and feel bad. Or you can simply acknowledge it and still get a positive experience.

focus on what’s in your control and don’t let the rest impact your emotions
