Thinking like a storybook wolf

I've been reading a story that involves a wolf. In comparison to humans, the wolf lives in the present, and has a hard time thinking about the past or about the future.

Humans who think like this wolf does are probably better off around finals time. Now that I'm close to wrapping everything up, I realize again how what seemed to be a mountain just two weeks ago was really just a collection of little steps. Any stress I felt always came from thinking not about what I was doing, but about what I had to do, or didn't do yesterday.

Someone should remind me of this post if I ever decide to do a residency.
