Sometimes work frustrates me. But then I remember that my job isn’t to do what I want, but rather what my boss wants and my company needs me to do. So I need to remind myself of that sometimes. Because in the grand scheme of it all, the things that frustrate me really don’t make a difference in my life either way. They won’t have any real influence over what happens in the future.
So I end up frustrated over nothing of any real importance. And when it doesn’t get done as assigned, my boss gets annoyed as well. So I end up frustrated, my boss frustrated, and the assignment in question isn’t done. Not the outcome I want. So I just need to take a deep breath and release.
