One of my objectives for this year has been to give less time and attention to the noise that gets in the way of accomplishing whatever it is you’re working on.

It’s an ongoing process, learning to not give time or attention to what you can’t control. Even more important? Learning that if you do give it attention, it can keep you from getting anything done.

If you can do something about it, great. If it’s frustrating, identify steps to get through, or manage it. Then move along.
