Don't Worry. Get Busy.

January 11

On this day in 1842, William James was born in New York City; his brother was novelist Henry (Daisy Miller and The Turn of the Screw). William James was a Harvard professor, a noted philosopher, and the originator of the study of psychology in America. Considered one of the most influential thinkers of his generation, William was also a man of profound practicality. He advised, “Once a decision is reached, stop worrying and start working.” That’s wise psychology for all of us. Class dismissed.
