I’ve seen far too many problems created, or fueled, by people not sticking to their jobs.
They get upset and angry at things that, put it quite simply, are none of their business.
A normal excuse is that ‘I care’. And in the name of caring, they are willing to complain, be passive aggressive, undermine,… you know the drill.

What works best is less ‘caring’ and more love. What’s the difference?
Love has both a short term and a long term view. Before we engage in a problem, it’s useful to ask ourselves, ‘What’s the long term impact of what I’m doing here? Is this useful both in the short and long term?’ ‘Is it even my business?’
