It is a simple question I bet we could gather ready answers to. What bothers you? Can you fill out a quick top five list if asked? Probably. My follow up question is going to be harder though. Here it is: What are you doing about it? What are you willing to do about it? Does bullying bother you? Are you doing anything about it? Does it bother you that local businesses are going under? Are you doing anything about it? If our bothered-ness doesn’t translate into activity, we aren’t bothered enough to bother. But if we actually get bothered enough, it can propel us to do great things…but only if we allow ourselves to move beyond irritation and into full blown bothered. I actually think that if your bothers aren’t motivating you, they aren’t worth thinking about at all and you should just ditch them. All they are if you don’t are “life sucks,” taking away our joy without producing anything.
