Harness the Amazing Power of "P*SSED OFF"

You know, I never realized this until today.

Did you ever notice that when you're p*ssed off, you can get a lot done?

Take this morning for instance. The last couple of weeks, we've been looking at stuff related to our mortgage which is coming due for renewal, but I was procrastinating pulling the trigger. After a brief early morning conversation with my sweet wife that got my... um... aggressive energy up, I managed to research, decide, and blow off some instructions to the mortgage guy. Bam! Not only that, I barked a few orders to the kids, and they all *listened* to me! They helped with breakfast, got dressed, brushed their hair and teeth, helped to pack lunches for the day, and did it all fast without complaining! (Man, I should get p*ssed off more often!!)

Only then did I look back and examine other times I've been p*ssed off and accomplished things. Did you ever notice how much housework you can do when you're p*ssed off? It's weird. It's much more efficient. Aggressively efficient, even.

In fact, I shaved my head for the first time when I was p*ssed off. Back in 2000 I had spent weeks (maybe even months) pondering shaving my head. Now, truth to tell, it's not like there was a lot of hair by that time to make a difference... but it did to me! Anyway, and the reasons are lost to the vagaries of time, but there I was p*ssed off at something... and then I thought about shaving my head... and I pretty much just said, "F*ck it, I'm shaving my head!!" So I did it, I liked it, and I've been doing it ever since. Even when I've been in a good mood. ;)

So there you have it. The power of being p*ssed off. And now you've been warned:

Don't p*ss me off.

Um... unless there's something you need for me to get done.

Hmmm... interesting... getting pissed off gets you "fired up"...

All it ever got me was "fired".
