S:0635 Great Question: Tolerations?

(Great questions lead to great answers; weak questions, weak ones.)


“What am I tolerating?”


Coaching Point: A toleration is something that’s (1) not the way you want it to be, (2) irritating to you, and (3) about which you are doing nothing. In other words, you’re aware of it and putting up with it. The key to a toleration is that it’s costing you energy, consciously or unconsciously, by your inaction. What’s one thing you’re tolerating? Can you start to handle it so that you free up the energy you’re currently using to tolerate it? If not, what’s something else you’re tolerating? Find one to handle and the next one gets easier to deal with.
