Temper Tantrums

These days high-pressure professions offer pre-emptive training in anger management. A few state bar associations now require “civility” training for lawyers renewing their licenses. And as of last year, hospitals must have programs for “disruptive” physicians as a condition of accreditation.

  • If we keep making ourselves feel alike a victim, we will get more angry.
  • Don’t ruminate on past affronts or injustices
  • Recognize that most frustrations, inconveniences and indignities are trivial and temporary.
  • When angry, wait 15 minutes before you say something or an hour before you send an email. If it’s not going to be important in an hour, then let it go. It’s not worth getting angry about.
