Annoyed

Another person whose blogs I read with interest and stimulation is Seth Godin, whose pithy writing gets right to the point.  He’s not a follower of Jesus, but it just proves that truth is truth, whoever speaks it.  I like the fact that he writes short and terse, readable in a few minutes but applicable to what’s going on in my life.

Hope you enjoy this post of his, which I found brought a smile to my face and made me think.  Who could ask more of a blog?

 

 

 

 

Annoyed

Does being annoyed serve any useful purpose?

If it does, are there classes you can take or experiences you can pay for that help you become annoyed? We have gyms to get fit and mindfulness exercises to get calm, but I’m not sure I’m seeing a widespread movement toward seeking annoyance.

So, if being annoyed is simply a side effect of something else we do, and it’s not actually useful, why do we work so hard to amplify the annoyance we feel? Why create a narrative, push hard against the powerless bureaucrat or the stuck pickle jar simply to make ourselves even more annoyed?

The only person who is getting taught a lesson is us.
