Many of us are busy, busy, busy most days. So busy, in fact, that there are things in all of our lives that we are just tolerating. There are things that have crept into your life that you allow to continue to exist. You know, like that dirty car, or the leaking faucet, or the bumper-to-bumper traffic that we are forced to sit through every evening to get home. Stop for a moment and think about it: What are you tolerating in your life?

Whether you realize it or not, every toleration you allow to linger in your life drains your energy, your attention, and your motivation. It prevents you from fully realizing your life’s potential.

I am tolerating a certain friend who is always late and who spends more time looking at her cellphone during dinner than talking to me.
