Everything is an opportunity to choose. Will you let that irritating co-worker get on your nerves or simply say: “okay,” and shrug and walk away or say: “well, it seems like the wrong choice to me; but, have it your way.”
I simply let people know their choice doesn’t feel right for me. I acknowledge if they are the boss I will do it their way and I then let it go. I will never be able to change them.
I can sure change my reaction. Will you engage or let it go?
