Indulge the Beast

  Nancy Wu, Head of Client Service

I was in New York for work, and of course, so was the Blizzard. 

As 5,000 flights got cancelled, including mine, I narrowly escaped flight carnage by finagling this funky itinerary that got me out of the city before the weather kicked in full force, except that my travel time just got a heck of a lot longer.

There was piles of work waiting for me.  I couldn’t find an outlet to charge my devices at the airport.  I was walking around in sweat pants and bad hair, and I started to feel sorry for myself. 

We all experience times of beauty, when everything goes our way.  We tackle projects at work with gusto, get home in time for dinner, tell good jokes and feel in control.  Then there are the other times, when the beast takes over:  Procrastination, Frustration, Anger, Distress -- Sabotaging thoughts that get in the way of us doing our best work.  

These non-productive times are part of us.  There is no way to prevent them from invading our minds.  But what gets us down doesn’t have to keep us down.  Often the way to snap out of a funk is by taking some time to break our routine and let these thoughts manifest and pass. 

When I'm at the airport, my personal formula for wallowing and then getting back on my feet consists of a burger, Coke and a magazine.  I grab an empty table, kick up my feet and chow down.  Once I am properly coddled with bad food and Hollywood gossip, the beast is placated.  I can then get back to my computer (with greasy fingers) and onto the business at hand.

Hey, we all have our less-than-great moments.  But if indulging in these moments means getting us back on track faster, then I say embrace it.
