What me worry?

One of the things work has really highlighted is what people worry about. The graphics people always worry about the technical stuff. The technical people always worry about the graphics stuff. That has been the problem almost everywhere I've worked. It's true for the testing and support people too, the marketing and business people. It's true across the board, in everyday life as well. The majority of people's daily worry comes from their ignorance. It's a more specific expression of our general fear of the unknown.

There is an aphorism about fixing things you can change and not worrying about the things you can't which is very wise and all, but wisdom is rarely our operational motive. Instead people often cling to their worry like some kind of secret security blanket. What does it do for us? Why do we hold on to it? If I stress about something it makes me feel like I'm bearing the burden of it.
