Working on the Stress

I tend to avoid meeting with my supervisors whenever possible and I do the same thing, actually, stressing over materials to prepare specifically for that meeting, and it usually ends up as a complete anticlimax, with my having spent ages doing extra work that I didn't really need to worry about. Honestly, you seem to be a far more on-the-ball person than me generally, and I'm sure you are better prepared than you think.

The meeting was fine so I guess I was better prepared that I thought. I think my problem is that I'm usually stressing about the big picture (OMG! Dissertation!!!) but whenever I go to meet with my advisor I need to talk about specifics and I don't have too many problems there. I suppose the moral of the story would be that I should focus on the small pieces and working on each individual piece and that will take care of the big picture (journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and all that), but knowing that is what I should probably do and actually being able to do it are two completely different things.
