This points to a kernel of truth. Whether you experience stress has a
lot more to do with how you handle pressures than with what the
pressures are.

While not a Wally-ish goldbricker, I've learned that there's usually
another crisis tomorrow, so I don't get too worked up over the crisis
today. I just take a deep breath, deliver the best I can under the
circumstances, and move on.
