The stoics are saying that if you focus your energy on what you can change, you’re going to be a lot more productive and effective.

 ... and let go where you can’t.

When you focus on the things you can’t control, the pressure—and your anxiety—are intensified. Focus on the things you can control and let the rest take care of itself.
