Learn, Share, Grow - How to Deal with Frustration

learn share grow

Below is a lesson from Daniel Pink's Pinkcast on a technique to overcoming annoyances, frustrations and setbacks , as well as our key learnings.

The Blue Courage team is dedicated to continual learning and growth.  We have adopted a concept from Simon Sinek’s Start With Why team called “Learn, Share, Grow”.  We are constantly finding great articles, videos, and readings that have so much learning.  As we learn new and great things, this new knowledge should be shared for everyone to then grow from.

 This Is How to Deal With Frustration

By Daniel Pink

Key Learnings:

  • Based on learning from The Stoic Challenge by William Irvine.
  • In moments of frustration, annoyance, or setbacks, our tendency is to get angry and want to lash out -- which is a mistake.
  • Instead, you have 5 seconds to reframe the experiences as a test of the imaginary Stoic Gods. 
  • The Stoic Test: The imaginary Stoic Gods are testing your resilience and ingenuity -- it's an opportunity to be courageous.
  • By reframing your perspective, you will feel better and perform better.
