Random Thoughts on Life and Work

Tolerance – Or Rather The Lack Of

This morning as I was driving in to work I came to a realization; I’m bored. There’s nothing challenging me at the moment. I might go so far as to say my brain is getting flabby. I can feel it turning to mush. So with some introspection, I realized that I need to make some changes in the way that I work. I have been allowing myself to coast rather than engage.

I don’t normally set new year resolutions. However, in light of my current frame of thought, I figure it is time to set a target. So rather than a resolution, how about a pledge? Here is my pledge for 2012:

I pledge to be intolerant.

Part of the process of coasting through life is becoming tolerant of things as they occur. It happens slowly and insidiously. It becomes easier to just accept good rather than work towards the best.

With that in mind, here are five things I will be intolerant of:

  1. The status quo when it makes no sense.
  2. Choices that are made because the alternative is too scary.
  3. People who speak or act without thinking about the consequences to others.
  4. Software that doesn’t do what I need it to do.
  5. Inefficient structures.

Who’s with me?
