Authentic Conversations with Andy Mason

036 How to Avoid Frustration

April 14, 2020

Welcome to the conversation. In this episode I talk through how I have been distracted and what I am doing about that. I have learned that there are two issues going on: 

1. Issues over which I have a direct influence and concern and can do something about

 

2. Issues that I am concerned about, that I am worried about, that affect my bigger world, but over which I have zero Influence.

 

If I focus on the issues in number two, then I only get frustrated, irritated, wound up, angry...

 

But if I adjust my attention to the things that I have control or influence over, I become powerful and productive and fruitful, regardless of the external situation and circumstances.

 

So what will you do?
