The winds from other storms

You can probably see a theme developing between yesterday’s post and today’s post. It’s probably because the semester is starting, and there is suddenly a greater need to deal with people and organizations.

In any organization there are people who think they are helping, but aren’t. And you can’t do all that much about it, because you can’t change people.

I was having a conversation about this just today with a colleague. We agreed that the best you can do is to just keep getting your work done, and not let yourself become distracted by other peoples’ Sturm und Drang.

You’ve got your own goals, and you generally know what you need to do to achieve them. What you really need to do is remember to stay on the path to those goals, and not let the winds from other storms knock you off that path.

I know that’s easier said than done, but saying it out loud kind of helps. 🙂
