(How to make it very EASY to feel the positive emotion)

Anytime I immerse myself in my work, I feel Efficient.

Example Challenges

The car has broken down and I’m due at a business meeting in 30 minutes!   (DC011)

I’ve run into the car in front at the traffic light! (No one injured), I feel very shaken!!  (DC012)

People that say “Oh, can you do this, can you do that?” when you announce you are ‘nipping’ to the bank! (DC056)

When Virgin have a broadband fault, just as I sit down for a day’s work (quite a regular occurrence). (DC062)

Ringing up a supplier (in my case Virgin), on an 0845 no, so already you are trying to keep it short, then it being answered by a foreign person, who always starts by asking how your day is!  Then not understanding your enquiry!  Guaranteed to get you reaching for the brandy bottle! (DC066)

DC124 Feeling frustrated when people don’t pay me on time, especially as I rely on the money.

DC127 I’m sat in a garage waiting for my car to be serviced. I’ve brought all kinds of things with me and a great long list of things to do. Lots of distractions, canned music and can I focus?! Yes the atmosphere isn’t ideal but neither am I trying very hard. Maybe my list is a bit overwhelming too.

DC134 I’ve just put diesel in my car instead of petrol!!!!!

DC143 I keep running over time with my appointments (with clients) and it feels like I’m working for nothing.
