A David Allen affirmation

Not to put too fine a point on it, but I don't like affirmations. I feel like Al Franken playing Stuart Smiley. I do like David Allen, though, and I remembered he had a pretty good affirmation in his GTD book. I've put it to a picture here. You know, I was feeling stressed last night, and I said this to myself and it helped. The interesting thing is that the part I thought was stupid (the word "easy") is actually the word that makes the whole thing work. Because, using the system, it is or should be easy to manage the priorities. Doing the work might be hard, but that usually isn't where the stress comes from, is it?
