Do you ever get frustrated?

20 Apr 2011 | Happiness, Personal Productivity

So I’m kind of known for being a sunny, smiley, positive kind of person (see the tweet below for example)

But of course I have bad days too. I rant, I get frustrated, I sulk and I stomp.

Hmm… how many times do I say frustrated or frustration in this video?

What about you? Do you get frustrated? Share your thoughts in the comments box below.

    Way to go Grace! We ALL have stuck days, no denying it. Taking the dogs for a walk always helps me clear my mind and get things in perspective. Also like you, I find that just picking a simple task to complete, related to the business, and doing it, seems to get the ball rolling for the bigger tasks again.
    Also I find it helps to have a quick review of what I HAVE achieved, and give myself some praise for it (we can be our own worse critics huh?!
    Love your video extras btw! Get them used to the camera early 🙂

    cheers, and hugs

      Thanks Tanya, the kids are a natural with the camera – much more so than their mum! As for reviewing what you have achieved, absolutely, there’s a reminder at the bottom of the day planner I use that says “Celebrate what you have achieved, not what you haven’t” and the days when I feel I can’t be bothered to take stock of what I’ve achieved are the days when I know I really need to!

    Wunderbar!
    Oh Grace, you handle frustration like a pro and still remain on target – inspirational!
    I like your laundry folding solution. A bit like me and unpacking my moving boxes – just do the thing that’s in front of you, then at least something has been achieved (see my latest blog!!!),

    Yes of course I get frustrated but mainly with myself for finding a task too challenging! I don’t like to feel this way so do plenty of deep breathing – walk away and come back with a fresh approach.
