Life is a series of problem-solving events.

We cannot avoid problems – we can only choose how we react to them.

The only question I have for you is this…

Are you going to get irritated, or are you going to get intrigued?

The next time you have a challenge on the court, in school, at work, or in a relationship, are you going to get irritated, or are you going to get intrigued?

If you get irritated, you will not perform at a high level, nor will you have satisfaction.

If you get intrigued, you will be curious to figure out ways to overcome the challenge and probably will. Besides, who doesn’t love a challenge?

Recently I attended to a lecture given by Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Zander has a similar way of dealing with problems.

When something doesn’t go well, he throws his arms up in the air and yells, “How fascinating!”

I like that.

Here’s your homework…

When you encounter a problem today, instead of getting irritated by it, get intrigued.

Or you can throw your hands up in the air and yell, “How fascinating!”

People may think you’re strange, so tell them you learned it from Benjamin Zander. I’m joking.

Have a super day everyone…

Thanks for reading.
