In life we are presented with a dazzling array of things that offend us. Regrettably the list grows by the hour. However, as the saying goes “if you care about everything, you stand for nothing”.
My thought of the week is that in business and in life it is important that we first distinguish those things that offend you from those things that affect you. My suggestion is that we all need to simply let go of the things that offend but do not affect us. We need to use our limited energy to work on the things that affect us. We must realize that there will always be hate mongers, people who wish to divide us and the unscrupulous who want to sow havoc. Don’t let them live rent free in your head rather bring focus to the things that truly affect you and you care about and let go of the rest.
