Embrace being Irrationally Annoyed

People are too tolerant of their daily frustrations. I’m not. I’m a New Yorker and a Designer; I’ve a unique ability to get annoyed over almost anything. Frustration fuels creativity and propels one to take action. Learning to recognize and embrace feelings we’re taught to ignore takes effort and patience but it’s worthwhile. It’s important designers and entrepreneurs alike embrace the pressure of frustration, so that they may employ one of the most impactful and under-utilized design tools.
