In one of his books, and I can’t remember which one, Robert Ringer described a sign he made for himself. It asked:
Does it really matter?
If so, how much does it matter?
We get caught up in a thousand ridiculously small things that don’t really matter and we burn up our psychic energy dealing with them. I’m not talking about small acts of kindness or taking small steps to get going or other positive small actions. I’m talking about sweating the small stuff of life and blowing them up into things that matter, when in reality they don’t mean squat.
Going beyond the don’t sweat the small tough attitude in Ringer’s sign is J. Krishnamurti. He is reported to have asked, “Do you want to know what my secret is?”. His answer was:
“I don’t mind what happens.”
