I am someone who is very interested in knowing where I am going, charting the course, and having a certain outcome in mind. When the result is different than I expect, I look for reasons. Do I need to tweak this, change that, or do something else?
Most of the time, what I need to do is take a step back and see if what I am doing is the right thing for me at this time and with whatever audience.
My suggestion: listen to the answer even if it’s not what you expected. The lesson could be highly beneficial if you are open to it.
Have a great day,
