Anxiety: The Energy Eater

Our level of anxiety will determine our team’s ability to sustain high levels of competence over time. Worrying wears me out. It takes so much mental energy trying to imagine all the possible negative scenarios that could happen. In fact, it is exhausting to predict a terrible future a bunch of different ways that will almost certainly never come to pass. Cluttering our brain space with anxious scenarios limits out team’s focus, productivity and ability to outlast our opponent. Anxiety is a disease of the mind that wastes the vital resources of attention and energy.
