We all know them.
We all dread them them.
****Everything is going to plan.
You have plenty breathing room;
And then out of nowhere:
****A speed bump is something
that slows you down.
Something that is out of your control.
Sometimes you are able to go around it,
but it costs you momentum.
You can get angry about them.
You can shout at the person who is responsible.
But in the end:
Just live with them.
There is nothing to be gained by attacking them.
But there is lots to be gained by ignoring them.
Accept that there are speed bumps along the road
and ensure you are not stopped by them,
but other than that:
Just ignore them.
As you might have guessed:
Today was one of those days.
I came into the office
and everything looked excellent.
About 20 more minutes
to finish the last task
and then be done for the week.
Now, 7 hours and about 15 speed bumps later
I’m exactly where I started this morning.
And yes, I got angry … a little.
But in then end I remembered to
If you can’t change it,
live with it.
