Two Minute Drill:

Transforming Frustration into Empowerment


What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is “From Frustration to Empowerment.” We get to work with people, if we’re lucky, every single day, and not everything always goes as planned. In fact, sometimes people disappoint us, and sometimes we disappoint them too.



From Frustration to Positive Action



When they disappoint us, in our minds, it could be something they said, something they did, something they didn’t do, something they didn’t say.  

There are three important steps you can take to manage those things more effectively.  

The first thing is to understand your feelings. Ask yourself what specifically I am feeling. Is it frustration? Is it anger? Is it resentment? What are the feelings that I’m feeling? And understand that.  

In many situations, those feelings that you’re having don’t just stem from this individual situation, you have past experiences that are locked into your conscious and subconscious mind. Many times, those past experiences can truly cloud or bias what we’re feeling in the present moment when we’re dealing with this challenging situation with another person. 

Two, ask yourself the question, what am I learning from this? What can I learn so that I can be a better person and deal with the situation more productively?  

Lastly, in the spirit of that, focus on what you can control and act. We still may be frustrated about that individual, what they said, what they did, what they didn’t say, what they didn’t do but we do have control over our feelings, and we have control over our actions.  

Take action, and do something about it based on what you learn and based on what you understand about your feelings.  

Guys, that’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. Have a great week and I’ll talk to y’all next week.
