Per the law of displacement, I cannot have "happy" and "unhappy" in the same space at the same time.
So, to make room for the insertion of happy stuff, I must remove the unhappy stuff.  Of course, we can try to insert more happy stuff into the space and push out ther unhappy.  That works to some extent, but the unhappy stuff is still "on the mind", as a "threat to survival" (at some level), so the brain will have attention on it - that's an evolved necessity that caused us to survive!

will this matter a year from now?  Is my anxiety about getting it done justified?

If you want more, you've got to make something else more efficient.  The way you do that is that you have great procedures built into systems that make things automatic and easy.  One of those systems approaches is habits - invest some upfront into developing and practicing them and then they become automatic, effortless, easy, and effective.

Rent other people's pipelines.  Develop skill, find resourse to find other people to do things, responsibly (like idea of Angie's List

Do I have t be more to be ok.  What is ok?

Resistance - I should be doing something else
