My coworkers hear me say this A Lot 😊 “It’s not that deep”
I take the same advice in my personal life. I do everything in my power to not let the little things & little people get me off track. It’s not to say that whatever I’m talking about is not important but think about it, how important is it really?
Will whatever “it” is cause someone harm? Will a life be forever changed in a negative way because I’m stressed or worried about whatever “it” is? If I’m late for a meeting will the world stop? I don’t think so. If I can’t complete something right then, are there dire consequences? I doubt it. Especially if you bring it to me last minute. If my son can’t get the Nintendo Switch, I’m not worried about it. He has a nice roof over his head, food to eat & clothes on his back. Getting that game “is not that deep.”
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about being responsible as a parent & an employee but what I’m not gonna do is put more pressure on myself for something that can wait or be completed at a later time. My mental & physical health are very important to me. I want to be both a happy parent & a happy employee and adopting the “its not that deep” attitude helps me to maintain that balance.

So the next time you are stressing about something ask yourself “Is it really THAT deep?”
