Here are some good sayings to keep in the front of your mind:

  • “A watched kettle never boils”. And also “A watched computer never boots”! If something takes a while to happen, don't just stand there watching it. Do something else while it happens. I confess that I've been guilty of watching scandisk and defrag on a computer as they chug along… You need to plan ahead and let the kettle or computer or whatever do its thing while you do yours, rather than getting stressed waiting for it to finish and wasting your own time.
  • “A stitch in time saves nine”. One of the most literal, this one. Repair that loose stitching early, and you won't have a huge sewing job on your hands. Or fix that problem with your bike or car before it gets expensive, or clean up a spillage before it gets trodden around the house or dried in.
