If you’ve got children you’ll be aware of the concept of “picking your battles”.

Letting some things go so you can concentrate on other things you think are more important or more of a priority.

Otherwise things can descend into near constant argument.

Even if you don’t have kids, you’ll have heard the phrase, I’m sure.

Applies to all relationships really – personal or work related.

I saw a variation on this on social media the other day;

“If you don’t pick your battles you don’t win any of them”

Which is completely true.

In all areas of life.

Especially with the battles that we can never actually win.

The more of them we try and fight, the more we’ll lose at those we could win.

Everything becomes a battle when we argue with reality.

“People shouldn’t………….”

“I should be able to…………..”

“The world shouldn’t be this way”

“It’s not fair that…………”

I’m not religious, but I love what’s know at the ‘Serenity Prayer’:

“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change………

Courage to change the things I can……….

And wisdom to know the difference”

Some things are just the way they are.

It might be nice if they were different.

But if we’re picking those battles, we’ll lose at those we could win.

The better choices we could make under the circumstances.

The forward progress we can still make in spite of what’s going on and not allowing ourselves to be stopped because of it.

Remember “If you don’t pick your battles you don’t win any of them”.

Pick yours wisely 🙂
