Dean Hawkes of Columbia University said that “half the worry in the world is caused by people trying to make a decision before they have sufficient knowledge on which to base a decision.

I keep six honest serving-men

(They taught me all I knew);

Their names are What and Why and When

And How and Where and Who.

– Rudyard Kipling

So next time you loose your mind in a grey cloud of worry, remember the six friends.
