Do you care enough?
So, a wise man once said to me (and I paraphrase slightly, due to vagaries of memory):
There are two types of problem. The ones you care enough to do something about.
And the ones you don't.

The former, you should.
The latter, you shouldn't worry about.

I find it elegantly summarises how to live a contented life. Maybe even a happy one.

What about the ones that you care enough to do something about, so you do something, and it doesn't work, and now you don't know what to do next? Or the class of problem that you care enough to do something about, so you put things in motion to do something about it, but then you have to wait for other people / the world to catch up / a free moment?

That is the class of problem that appears to dominate my life at the moment.
