What You Signed Up For

Doctors go where there are sick people, not healthy people. Carpenters don’t look for finished houses with no flaws.

You go where there’s work of a kind you want to do.

So don’t get frustrated when there’s a lot of that work to be done – that’s what you’re there for.

I’ve met folks who didn’t want to join organizations because the organization was bad at X, when X was the thing the person was good at. That’s not a reason to be frustrated – that’s like being a kid in a candy store! It’s opportunity as far as the eye can see.

Sometimes we don’t want to do, we want to have done. But doing is an essential part of getting done. Be happy when you can do a lot all at once – looking for problems is twice as much work as solving them, but only in solving them is the reward found.
