Don’t blame the weatherman for the rain

Summer is coming and you’re hoping for sunny weather. Sadly enough, the forecasts tell you it’s going to rain and it will be quite chilly. Do you blame the weatherman? Of course not. The weatherman doesn’t create the weather, that’s outside his (or her) influence. But why do we blame people for things gone wrong? Often, part of what went wrong is outside their control. You can review what they did — but blaming them for the results is a narrow-minded action. Better, discuss how you can enlarge your influence on the situation, how to make the best of your influence and how to handle external influences flexible and effectively. Don’t scapegoat, but learn together instead.
