What futility doesn’t feel like

By | November 20, 2008

There is nothing more perfect than the punch line of this Dilbert strip.


Who among us cannot relate? I actually considered making that my new theme on this site. There are times that it seems to perfectly capture my life.

That could be depressing, but the intent of this strip is to laugh at the depression, and that’s usually what I do in life as well. It’s amazing how well the stress drops off when you do that. When I’m in the proverbial “impossible situation” I just laugh at the absurdity of it all and realize that I can only do what I can do. Then I do what I can. If failure occurs, I just try to make sure it’s not because of me.

Is that denial? Maybe. I’m okay with that, though.

What do you do to cope when things seem futile?

    heh … that’s a novel approach. Maybe I’ll try that next time. Though with the frequency of occurrences, I might actually incur brain damage. Hmm… wonder if I can get worker’s comp for that…
