Wait the results in peace

When the day is over, and you've done your best... Wait the results in peace.

My parents gave me a small plaque with this inscription on it not long after I graduated from college, and I've grown to fully believe its message. In fact, there have been many stressful nights where this mantra helped me achieve restful sleep.

Work hard all day today, and make a good game plan for how you want to attack tomorrow. Then get a good night's sleep.

Stressing out in the wee hours of the night over something you can't control is incredibly unproductive.

Being ok with your best work, regardless of the exact outcome, leads to a fulfilling life.
