5 Most Annoying Events

Posted on February 24, 2012 by Keith Sanders 1 Comment

According to a poll, the following 5 events are considered by most people to be the most annoying.

Get a filling
Paying a bill late
Getting a parking ticket
Raining, with no umbrella
Arriving at bus stop late

So, what do all these things have in common?

Well, when I saw this story airing on a TV newscast, the first thing that struck me about this list is…all of these “annoying” events can easily be prevented.

Getting a filling can be prevented by practicing good oral hygiene. Paying a bill late can be prevented with budgeting and sound money management. Parking ticket? Just follow some simple rules about where you can park and for how long.

The last two just require proper planning ahead of time.

Instead of blaming the event, true leaders (when they find themselves in these situations) ask the important question: “What do I need to do differently next time to prevent this from happening again?”

Are you doing the same things over and over, and getting frustrated by “annoying” events?  Make a commitment today to begin asking yourself the tough questions and commit to taking different actions today to produce improved results tomorrow.

Take initiative. Solve problems. Move forward.
