How to Make Anger Work For You

October 27th, 2014

We talked about how to cull your emotions in the last post, but in this post, we’ll be discussing your anger’s capability to focus you into your work and productivity.

Anger is a very strong emotion. It is capable of getting you into trouble because your strong feelings may manifest into dangerous expressions. This could tarnish your relationships with other people and even do irreversible damages. Unless the other party is understanding, your anger will not solve anything.

 

Your anger actually enhances your focus and concentration. However, if you could divert your anger into something more productive, it can definitely make a difference.

 

The next time you get mad, ask yourself you have more work to do and there are other things that you need to focus on. When you realise the world will not stop for you, that’s when you come to a point that you need to be productive, or else you risk losing the chance for your own growth. Picture your task as a punching bag that you could deal blows by doing everything on time and precisely.

 

Accepting the damages and the impact is one way to retain your concentration. The body has a fight-or-flight mechanism that activates to “fight” when we’re angry and furious. Instead of focusing on the damages, focus on accepting that it has already happened, passed and forgiven, and you could just change what is happening at present.

 

Lastly, goals are very important. Prioritise all your tasks for the day instead of focusing on what isn’t supposed to happen. Don’t let your anger cloud your productivity by trying to ease it. Instead, focus your efforts to let your mind wander with your tasks. See the beauty in the small capabilities and achievements you could do attaining your tasks. In this way, you also ease the emotions while retaining your focus all the while.

What Emotions Would Be Like In the Future

April 14th, 2014

This previous article discussed about how the internet, particularly social media, would evolve and play a great role in the future of technology and humanity. In that light, the world might also be looking at a pretty different future because of the changes in human interaction. Today’s emotions could be evoked digitally through emoticons and the like, but what would human emotions be like in the future should the internet’s supposed future take place?

1. Not So Real
Personal human interaction only allows you one chance to make an impression, which means that you have a limited time to say something that could make someone feel better, or worse, depending on their moods. In social media, you could leave a person waiting to receive your message, and you could think up of ways to impress them with good language, which you might also learn through the internet.

2. Entertaining
While the wide use of social media will leave text and video calls as the basis for speech, it would be entertaining for many people to think that all they read in social media is genuine. This is true today; many people are easily attracted to people who could talk well and prepare themselves for electronic chat. However, because it is the internet, nobody really takes the emotions very seriously.

3. Redefinition
The internet has changed the way people get over their past relationships. It has terribly prolonged the anguish of most people, and it had driven some people to claim their lives because of severe depression. The internet is a source of information, sometimes, information that you do not really want to see.
