History

I once noticed a pattern in my behavior: I was spending a lot of time thinking or worrying about things that ultimately didn't really matter 'in the grand scheme of things.' 

So I began to ask myself each time "Do I actually care?"

Later I noticed another pattern: I was also spending a lot of time thinking or worrying about things I didn't have control over.

So I added another question: "Do I have control?"

And thus began an experiment:

Could I categorize all things in life into just four categories, and would it make any real difference?

The simplicity of the idea is what impressed me the most: Figure out what category an item belongs in, then follow the rules of that category.

With determination and persistence I was able to end some habits and start others. It took years. I succeeded. Life improved.

The goal of this site is to effectively communicate this philosophy using few words.

I have invented nothing, this knowledge has existed for ages.
