It’s Monday morning, you can’t find your keys so leave the house late which means the traffic is adding more time to your commute. You sit frustrated in a queue of cars.

Snap out of it.

The first meeting of the day descends into chaos. It’s not clear what the agenda is and who is leading the meeting. The frustration grows.

The meeting finishes by grinding to a halt as everyone leave the room. You get back to your desk and your PC freezes so you need to reboot. The frustration builds into anger.

Snap out of it.

You take the anger into your next meeting. For the next hour people blame each other about the latest issue. Anger turns to apathy and you spend most of your time wishing you were somewhere else.

Walking back to your desk you are accosted by your colleague who wants to pass on some work that needs to be done by the close of play. You want to argue but don’t think it will make a difference.

The commute home is as bad as the drive to work earlier in the day. You shout at another driver who cuts you up at the junction and saves himself all of three seconds.

Snap out of it.

Does this feel familiar? I would imagine some or all of these events happen to you every day. You can accept this or recognise that in every second of every day we have a choice to make.

We can go along with the story or we can….
