A couple of months ago, I was having coffee with a long-time friend. The conversation started out upbeat enough, but then he went into a tirade about a coworker who was frustrating him to no end. My friend went on and on about how wrong his co-worker is. Finally, I said: “I have been there and know how you feel. You may be right, but how much time, energy, and effort does this hapless co-worker deserve?”
My friend looked shocked. He didn’t even realize that he had spent nearly 30 minutes ranting about his co-worker – time that we could have spent on more productive and fun things.
As my friend left the funky coffee place in our neighborhood, he paused, turned around, and said,”Time to let this go, huh?” I nodded and thought: No question about it.
Have a great day,
