Don't Dwell on Unwinnable Conflicts

Move on. The problems you spend your time and energy on should both be important and improvable. Otherwise, you are better off moving on to things you can change.
—David Niven, Ph.D. in Don't Dwell on Unwinnable Conflicts: Number 82 of The 100 Simple Secrets of Happy People

Many people experience conflict in balancing their time between work and home. Studies find that people who want to spend more time in both settings wind up feeling decreased satisfaction at home and at work. Those who recognize that their limited time is a conflict without a readily available solution are one–more likely to feel comfortable with themselves than those who do not.
