How have you benefited from the things that annoy you the most in your career?

We are always surrounded by things we like and things we don’t. We would love to get away from the stuff we don’t but this just opens us up to noticing more of it.

So, no point of running. Accept everything for what it is—a clarifying experience.

Things you like help you say: “more of these, please”.

Things you don’t—“less of these, please”.

Thus, everything unwanted helps you clarify what you really want. And that’s its biggest upside.

Every step is a step forward.
