Leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

Sir Alex Ferguson believes that ‘it’s fine to lose your temper as long as you have a good reason

Who defines a good reason though, eh?

Anyway, I lost my temper today. Funnily enough, it was not even because I was provoked, it was because someone else was.. haha..

Anyway, I tried staying silent for a whole 15 mins to let it pass, apologized and I’ve moved on..

But, it does leave a sour taste in the mouth nevertheless..

Good reason or not..

On further introspection, I realized a couple of things –

1) I hadn’t moved on, whether I liked it or not. I was still reflecting on what went wrong..

2) Gladwell in ‘Outliers‘ says it takes 7 consecutive things to go wrong for a plane to crash. I think there is a similar such equation applicable in an anger scenario for every one of us which is bound to be useful..

3) After the quote about ‘grace under pressure‘, I think I could have done better to live up to it. Lots of room for improvement, as always! 🙂
