Exponential Stress

One problem isn't a lot to deal with. Most people are patient enough to deal with one item that needs fixed.

Two problems are a bit more complicated to manage. Each new problem brings its own set of stress and complications and as the number of problems grow, the baggage grows exponentially. It's a lot like coins; if you have one coin, it's light, but a hundred coins weigh a lot more. When we let our problems stack, we start carrying far too much "weight" in our day-to-day life.

Don't let problems pile up. Tackle them as they appear and make sure they are solved before more and more appear and multiply the effects. Dealing with a problem is never fun, but putting up with a dozen problems at once is even worse.
