So what do you guys do when you feel so completely and totally overwhelmed that everything seems hopeless?
#1: For 30 seconds, remind yourself: It Will All Be OK. This is temporary, not permanent.

#2: Go down to the library and grab a book. I recommend The Shadow of the Wind. Engross yourself for a day.

#3: Relax. Do what you can. Each morning I hear Garrison Keillor's signoff for the Writer's Almanac and it's perfect: Be well, do good work, and keep in touch.

Do those three things first. Then deal with the rest.
