Fruits of Frustration
Have you ever felt frustration from thinking you could do, or contribute, more?
Sometimes when you get bored, or demotivated, it could be because of your frustration with how things are done.
I have lived with someone who is always looking to improve systems, for more than twenty years.
When you have an idea that you believe will make life better and no one listens, it can be very demotivating.
One idea for how to cope is to plant seeds of inspiration in those around you.
Find people who will talk about and advocate for your idea.
Slowly, over time, an “out there” idea might get some backing from people who can actually make it happen.
Find Your Friends
Gathering people who share your frustration, or have some of their own, can help to spark creativity.
How can your experiences come together and support each other.
Maybe you have tried to solve things one way, and they another.
Combined the solutions are even better.
Being open to other people’s ideas, while nurturing your own can be tricky. I find this to be more true if the ideas are really different from “normal”.
Compromising your way out of your idea is not a good plan either.
Finding commonalities that you both can build on may lead to something different. Maybe better…
Instead of giving up or getting complacent, try to harness the creativity that can be born from frustration.
While you train, think about it? Cheers!!
