I enjoyed Annette’s latest post On lessons to be learned from worrying… [UPDATE: quoting Adam Philips.] Annette’s always thought-provoking on things like this. (This is a woman doing a PhD on Disappointment in Organisations – what a great topic for a dissertation!)

Worrying carries quite a strong taboo so I like the idea of rehabilitating it as Annette seems to suggest. I also like her interest in styles of worrying. I think a lot of what we call planning is really just the socially acceptable face of worrying. That’s great in some contexts; in others it becomes a bit miserable – we’d do better to acknowledge anxiety and not try to fix it.
