Ever get caught watching the clock and stressing out about the ticking seconds and thinking that you won’t be able to get your current task done in time?

It keeps ticking methodically and so should you. Make use of each second and don’t waste time because you’ll find that eventually you’ll be looking at the clock and stressing over it, which doesn’t produce anything.
