'For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.' -- Emerson

However, we should not forget that anger is also an emotion which is created for a reason... Its just a matter of how we handle it and what we do afterwards... and yes forgiveness is the key...

interesting.

The way I think about it is this. What's this issue really worth?

If I lose a customer and it means I could have to lose a staff member to account for revenue loss, that's a bigger deal than say, misplacing a piece of information or disappointing someone over something small.

So I always say, what's this worth to worry about or be angry about, and then I make the five minutes or hour and deal with it. Process in 1 chunk and not let issues fester by being in the background of everything.

Emerson got it right - anger is a waste of time, never more so when we direct it against ourselves. Forgive...
