We interpret the what is said to us or written to us depending on how we feel.

If I am worried about financial issues and someone comes up to me saying

"You know they say people should save more when they are young" with no other intentions than sending a message from the news.

Then this sentence could be offensive and lead to a quarrel. on the other hand if my life was just normal I would probably say "that's a good idea, I should start saving some money"

So it really is important to express feelings after a while when my feelings have recovered. This also fits to business judgements.

We make numeral decisions daily that affect the company. So when we are not thinking straight or have some other issues in our head that differs from our original business plan. Then we really have to hold on to that quick decision that we wanted to make and decide it when our mental state is back to normal.

This is where religion proves to be an awesome mechanism for humans.

We feel anger, retaliation, fear, sorrow, stress everyday. We need some kind of recovery to make our mental thoughts to our original plan which would mostly be "pursuing for happiness". And nothing is more better than praying every night going to some church that environmentally makes us holy and want to pray. Each prayer is usually thanking for what is 'on the plate' and blessing people around us.

I strongly would like to implicate this into business. Where we fight everyday for survival , though the main reason is to 'put something on the plate' and try to have some value in life. So every night or every weekend we should reset our thoughts for the first goal we first set when we entered the company. Then maybe even though every day is a small war, then people can be able to refresh their thoughts to a less hostile set of mind and work with a bit more enthusiasm
