7 Principles That Will Guarantee Constant Misery

4) Spend a lot of time focused on things you can't control.

Worrying will wear you down under the best of circumstances, but if you really want to ramp your frustration level up to 11, spend your time worrying about things you can't control.

Getting upset about these sort of issues allows you to combine a sense of helplessness along with a completely useless, anxiety-producing activity. So, it's the worst of all worlds.
