This is from an interesting guided meditation by Sam Harris.

All our problems fit into one of two categories: either an issue that needs dealing with right this second, or something that’s not yet happening.

We humans are pretty well adapted at dealing with right now problems, we’ve been doing it forever.

However, we’re not well adapted at dealing with not yet happening problems. Luckily, for the most part we don’t actually need to use any mental energy on these, meditation can be a helpful reminder of this.
