A reflection on annoyances…
I am doing the exercise that I sent out on Monday — Managing Annoyances — and have two observations that I wanted to share with you.
(No, I’m not going to tell you the number of times that I get annoyed a day as that might lead to competition.)
Here are two things that I’ve found:
  1. I want to record WHY I am annoyed every time that I get annoyed.  I really want to be able to justify my irk.
  2. The simple act of taking out my note-pad to record my annoyances short-circuits my usually path of making a snarky comment.  As Victor Frankl said: Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
I hope you are trying this exercise and learning about you — after all, what is more important to learn?
