“Stress and anxiety are the result of the lack of a plan to bridge the gap between your expectations and your reality”.

You have stress and anxiety when there is a gap between your present reality and your expectations for yourself—but in particular when you don’t have a plan to close that gap.

Once you have a plan, they melt away, because it just becomes a “game” of executing on a daily set of actions, which is entirely within your control.

Whenever you feel the stress and anxiety building in your life, focus on identifying that gap and creating a plan that will guide your daily actions.
