…I sometimes get mad. I’m not sure why. I am sure there is a good psychological explanation of the internal trigger that fires off in my brain. Fortunately, I have learned to insert a 3-second fuse between the emotional reaction and what I say and do on the outside. That ability rescues me most of the time.
It’s silly, really. It’s like getting mad at a 3 year old who doesn’t understand math…or being angry at someone who can’t tell when when they are off pitch (there is a reason I’m not a judge on American Idol).
The inability to see what I see may be an issue of skills and abilities. It may be an issue of perspective. But it is certainly not an issue of character. There is no breach of trust involved.
Therefore, try not be disappointed when I can’t see what you see. Just help me see what you see. And I will endeavor to do the same. Everyone one our team will greatly benefit from this behavior.
Thanks for Listening.
