Big and small problems occupy the mind largely

Recently, I spoke with a doctor who was seriously ill himself and asked “Can you still take patients serious who complain about little things?” His answer was “Everyone experiences problems in his or her own way, therefore an outsider cannot judge whether a problem is big or small”. If you have a problem it keeps your mind busy. It is very hard to let a problem go before you found somehow a solution. A colleague of mine said “I prefer to work hard towards a solution and then take a rest, because I cannot rest as long as the problem occupies my mind”. Understandable, but there is a risk that you overload yourself. It requires a strong character to avoid that. Knowing your own limits is most likely the number one challenge for people in modern society. To get a better insight in your own values, register for the ESD 2019 workshops
