Living in an angst-ridden limbo

So the vast majority of people who have the luxury of discretionary time and choice live in an angst-ridden limbo between the options, on the one hand, of having everything they’re engaged with mapped into a trusted self-management model and on the other, everything in their head. Anything in-between is worse than either of those options. Most people live there.
