Survivors do not let themselves be overwhelmed by the seeming impossibility of the task they face. Steve Callahan drifted 1800 miles for 76 days on the open ocean in a five-foot raft: He knew that to think of the impossibility of drifting there would excite dangerous emotions. Instead, he planned only as far as the following morning. By not thinking of the almost certain death that would result... he was keeping himself from despair and panic. So he set up a small, attainable goal. To act is human, to succeed, crucial.
