Earlier today I encountered a situation that I was not prepared to handle as well as I know I could have. My emotions were getting the best of me and I knew it. I paused. I rolled my chair back from my desk, looked up, and took a deep breath. Then it hit me. There was a quote which caused me to chuckle. Next thing I knew it was the answer to the challenge.
“The chief task in life is simply this: to identify and separate matters so that I can say clearly to myself which are externals not under my control, and which have to do with the choices I actually control. Where then do I look for good and evil? Not to uncontrollable externals, but within myself to the choices that are my own…”Epictetus
Looking at this situation through the correct lens solved the challenge.
