This post originally appeared on my blog pdxkcm.com on Sunday, May 10, 2015, under the title “Anger”.
Work went great this last week, largely because the previous week was so terrible. Discomfort and failure often prompt positive change.
What was so bad about it? For starters, I was exceedingly, perpetually, and inexplicably angry. I wasn’t angry at anyone or anything in particular, though, and that leads to trouble. Anger is a vector. It has both magnitude and direction. Fail to realize that and you may find your rage unleashed on the first unsuspecting victim who crosses its path.
