Got anger? How to put it to good use

"When we’re livid, many of us opt to calm down first before making any kind of decision. But research on consumer behavior from Northwestern’s Kellogg School suggests that anger may help us focus. Anger can push us to act with greater certainty. The resulting decisions are often more clearly based on our goals and we are more likely to feel satisfied with our choices, the researchers found. One key thing to keep in mind? Make sure the anger is directed productively. Otherwise, things can get ugly."
