This morning it’s cold and rainy, despite the forecast calling for sunshine today. I found myself a little upset on seeing the rain as we’re on vacation and want to be outside.

Feeling upset at a problem is a normal experience we all go through many times per day. Being upset is an internal process you use in an attempt to control a problem. The control, however, is focused on the upset and not the problem.

In leadership and life, start by pausing when you find yourself upset. Ask yourself what’s true about the problem and act on that truth. You might find your problem isn’t actually your problem. It’ll also make it easier to let go of your upset when the problem isn’t yours to do something about.

As for that rainy morning, we didn’t really have a problem. We didn’t get out on the lake until the afternoon when the sun came out.

You’ve got this.
