13 Simple Steps To... What a pile of crap

Today I saw a post online that really made me laugh.
The post was this..

13 Simple Steps To Get You Through A Rough Day
If you are having a bad day then you should probably look at this post.

Its the biggest load of crap I have seen in a while..

Sure there could be 13 steps to getting you through a rough day but looking at pictures aren't them.
How is printing out a picture of Brittney Spears bald and putting it up on a wall supposed to help me get through a rough day?

Sure.. If you're a huge fan of her then it may be slightly inspirational to you, but for the average Joe or the not so keen Anti-Fan its going to do nothing to help at all..

Step 4: Imagine you are this penguin...

How is imagining that I am a penguin being petted by some famous guy going to get me through a rough day?      Its clearly not going to, is it...

If you really were having a rough day and you needed to follow some simple steps to get through it then it sure as hell wouldn't be those. It would be something more like a flow chart.

How about this?

10 Simple Steps To Get You Through A Rough Day
Step 1: Look at your day... Has it been a bad day? What has caused it to become a bad day? Loads of small things? A big thing? Try to make a list of all the things that have caused your day to become tough.

Step 2: Now that you have a list of all the things that have caused your day to become rough how about you now take that list and cross off all of the things that are very minor and are most likely not ever going to happen again. Things like I lost £50 somewhere while going shopping. For you see these things happen from time to time and cant be helped, you shouldn't worry about them or let it get to you. (Maybe try to solve them at a later date if it does seem that important)

Step 3: With your list now only holding the things that are a actual problem and that need to be sorted out try and put them in 2 new lists. List 1 will have the biggest problems at the top (Such as ones that have been going on for days) while list 2 will have the ones that really get to you at the top first (Stuff that you really need to solve soon.)

Step 4: Count how many things there are in the list (lets say 15) and on each list give them a number value that represents its position in the list. Add the value assigned to a problem, from both the list 1 and 2 to get a final value for each problem.. You should now list them in order of value. This will now make the most important stuff at the top of the new list so that you know what to work on first.

Congratulations you have gotten your problems organised.

Step 5: Take the problem from the top of the list. Do you think you can solve this easily? If so then go to Step 7. If not then find someone you can talk to about the problem and explain the situation to them to try and get a better view on how others might solve the problem. If other people are the issue then maybe try and stay away from that person so that you can take some time to get your though together and then talk things through.

Step 6: Now you have a better idea on how to deal with the situation, come up with a few solutions, maybe your own, maybe from others advice. Try to look at your solutions and then think about how doing the opposite would effect the situation to make sure that you might not be making a mistake. Try to think about how it effects you and then how it will effect others.

Step 7: With your final solution in mind, set up a way or putting it into action. Be it a plan-o-gram, a timetable, a notepad reminder. Maybe its even going out and buying the things you need to get started on sorting it.

Step 8: Put your idea on how to solve the problem into action in small steps. Don't try to solve it all at once as that will just cause you to get worked up and possibly even cause more problems. ?Take it easy and if need be ask for support.

Step 9: When all things are starting to look up and the problem slowly vanish take some time to look at your achievement at actually solving the problem , if the problem hasn't been solved or isn't getting any better then talk to someone and try and get a understanding as to why this may be.. then jump back to Step 6.
If the problem has been solved then jump to Step 5.

Step 10: When all problems are solved or partly solved make sure to look at things in a positive way.. Even if only a few things have been solved, at least its getting better.

Congratulations your day should no longer feel so rough and things should start to look up..

It's something like that or "Fuck it, who actually gives a crap about what happens.. no matter what happens as long as I do what makes me happy then I can at least look back and so I enjoyed myself and everyone else should have just done the same"
Not saying that's the best option but sometimes its needed, all depends on who your dealing with at the time. Obviously don't do that to your boss...
