Power Play: Anger and laughter are mutually exclusive

I love this Power Play because it forces a person to make a conscious choice. Will I get angry and be blinded by my anger or will I try to look through it to the other side and see something funny in the situation?

Even the most awful and complicated situations contain some humour in them – or at the very least, you can choose to see something funny in them.

Power Players always choose laughter because they know that anger clouds their judgment. There’s another good reason: there’s less recovery time involved when you’re laughing, as opposed to yelling.

Take a lead from the shrewdest Power Players: next time you are faced with a situation that makes you want to explode, don’t.

The anger will get you nowhere except possibly even angrier. Try to see the funny side because I promise you, there will always be one to see.
