Your Emotional Boxes

(email subscribers: click here to go to Work Happy Now to view the video)

True happiness grows within us when we are able to let go of our attachment to pain. We should all practice this vital skill in order to bring consistent joy into our lives.


Whenever I need a kick in the butt to get myself in gear I stop by Dave Navarro’s blog Rock Your Day. Plus he can launch the bejesus out of any product.

    Karl, great video! I loved it. Thanks so much for sharing this. I’m going to try and make use this advice today. Stumbled.

  2. Hi Karl,

    Ouch! I hope your back is feeling better real soon.

    I like what you say about allowing ourselves to feel “whatever” for a specified period of time. Just giving ourselves permission to feel those emotions often helps us to deal with the situation and find resolution.

  3. Hi Barbara, I’m already feeling better. This experience is just making me a better blogger. We do need to give ourself permission to feel the way we do. This will allow us to process these feelings.

    Hi Stephen, good luck and let me know how this technique works for you. I’m always curious about how other people apply work happiness to their lives.

    Karl, Hope you are feeling much better by now. Here is another technique that works very well. Just breather deeply and feel the feeling. Interestingly pain just feels like a vibration once we remove the thought that it hurts. Give it a shot.

  5. You said my favorite word … “compartmentalize.”

    I’m a fan of focus and factoring for improving results. There’s a time and place for integrated and mashing up, but there’s a lot to be said for compartmentalizing and boxing things to first get deeper insight. It’s one of the most effective ways I know to turn insight into action.
