Teach Me A Lesson

I’m learning something the world is teaching me. I’m learning that I can work with a-holes, and need to improve my ability to work with dicks.

At work I have been privileged to work with people who are hard working, smart, rock stars. Only some are a-holes.  Some personalities I haven’t liked, but that doesn’t matter, because we aren’t here to hang out but here to get IT DONE, whatever IT may be. I stumble on people who are not accidental a-holes, but intentional ones. That doesn’t sit well with me.

I’m being taught patience, tolerance and humility.

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”  2 Timothy 2:15
