Why anger is better than frustration

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Confusion: that's a light sampling of conflicted thought.

Torn between 2...that's a heavier sampling.

Confounded: that can be bloody annoying.

Conflicted thoughts are the roots of frustration.

Frustration gets you nowhere & getting nowhere is frustrating: a vicious circle or downward spiral.

At least when we are angry we are more certain about our thoughts. This is why anger is better than frustration.

Can this common sense [backed by brain science] withstand the urgencies of your day?

Focus & concentration bring excellence.

When we have mastered performance excellence we can get in the zone.

Either way, focus/concentrate or in the zone, we are not multi-tasking when we are performing with excellence.
