Today's Fortune: Trivial

Today's fortune cookie reads: "Do not burden yourself with trivial matters."

This one confuses me. Normally when you hear a line like this you have one character freaking out about the details of various things and then their sensei or good friend says this and tries to calm them down. It usually ends with at least a glum, reluctant acceptance from the control freak or a complete breakdown.

So what, exactly, is the fortune cookie company expecting to happen while eating their food that warrants an intervention of this type?
