The recognition problem
You spent so much time agonizing over it, and when you actually knuckled down it took like an hour. Was the agony worth it?
This question is close to useless; sometimes people just need something to agonize over, and some people don’t have many real candidates. The agonizing is going to happen, and that means it’s going to be about something silly.
The key, then, is recognizing it for what it is, and not letting it call the shots for you.
