Choosing your problems

Perhaps you only acknowledge and focus on problems where you know and are comfortable with the appropriate response. Denying the existence of the other ones is easier than dealing with them.

Or it might be that you only choose to see the problems that are actually situations, that can’t be solved, and that amplify our sense of hopelessness.

It could be that you prefer the quick, urgent and easy problems, because solving them is thrilling.

Or it may be the long-term, difficult and distant problems that show up on your radar, because after all, how could you be responsible?

Problems don’t really care whether we acknowledge them or not. They still exist. What matters is how we choose to direct our energy, because our tomorrow is the direct result of the way we spend our resources today.

Pick your problems, pick your future.
