Tolerating – interesting to think about all that we tolerate in our lives. There is a correlation between how many things we tolerate and the amount of money in our bank accounts. Those close to broke, tolerate much more than those jetting around the world. Think of the former-running-for-president Donald Trump. He is a Zero tolerance man for sure. Every time its “You’re FIRED!” as opposed to, “Oh, that’s ok. I don’t mind….” There is a big lesson here.
Diverting Your Business Strategy
Some things we shrug off as annoyances; others end up as belly aches from stuffed rage. How does tolerating behaviors – yours and others, your job – your boss and co-workers, your friendships those people who suck you dry emotionally , all divert your business strategy and energy away from achieving goals?
Tolerance Leaves Money on the Table at Work
Each of these tolerances effects the bottom line, doesn’t it? Having one foot on the gas and one foot on the brake as you tiptoe around, is exhausting. Some team members carry others work load and thus are less productive . Others skim by and efficiency is lost. The energy at work can be heavy with resistance to taking charge, stating what is and is not acceptable behavior and the chips falling where they may.
Imagine what work would be like if everyone knew exactly what was expected of them and everyone toed the line . The atmosphere would lighten up, people would feel energized and productivity increased. Imagine the feeling of empowerment , the personal growth, you will feel when you begin whittling down what you are willing to tolerate and you watch your bank account fill up.

“Susie? Yeah, she did an okay job. I paid her even though the formatting was not consistent throughout the book. I know how hard it was for her…..” “Even though John didn’t uphold his end of the bargain and I have been working a double shift, I’ll drive him two hours to see his friend. I don’t want him disappointed.”
Mask On First
