If you’re frustrated

You could just be earlier than everyone else
Seeing what no one else sees yet
Realising that every problem you come across
Is one that you’re going to have to deal with
Or endure
Alone
Until someone else ‘gets it’.
If you’re frustrated
You could be in the wrong house
Living with the wrong people
Spending your energy on the wrong projects
Measuring the wrong things
For the wrong reasons.
If you’re frustrated
It could be because you expected too much
Too soon
Too specifically
And everything going ‘’exactly according to plan’’
Meaning too much to you.
Frustration is the constant companion of leadership,
The initial spark that leads to change
The soap box under the feet
Our inhibition,
If you’re frustrated
Then it probably means you care.
