Did you ever notice that certain things happen about which you never complain?  These are some examples:

This computer is way too fast.

That customer service representative was too helpful.

My job is too much fun.

Our business is growing too fast.

Why did I ever put so much RAM in this PC?

I hate it when my paycheck is this big.

People at that company answer the phone too fast.

I am feeling too healthy and well today.

Our customers keep rating our products and services as excellent.

The IT person arrived too fast.

Humorous or not, I think we can all relate to at least a few of those.  They remind us that some challenges we will always have with us.  They also remind us that we each have the opportunity to get in front of the difficulties so that we might do a better job managing them.

Reflect on the things that irk you.  Maybe you have some opportunities to make those situations better or maybe you will just get a good laugh out of it.
