I feel mad because I am contemplating how much more money the author no doubt make than me as an executive coach and global business leader at Google. Also because of this sentence, “After research, I simplified it down to the smallest set of options. No need to be fancy here. These four emotions will have you covered most of the time.” If this is what most people think is research no wonder I make so little money. Finally, I feel mad because The Mission is nothing more than a listicle generating suck machine that is a blight on my homepage.

I feel sad because it seems like our society values the ability to spout cliched truisms and soothing platitudes more than the ability to solve concrete problems. I also feel sad because The Mission is still in existence.

I feel scared because its dark out and my nightlight is burnt out. It’s damn spooky in my room at night.

I feel happy because I just took a shower and it was nice. I also feel happy because I was able deliver burns of The Mission in 3 out of 4 short paragraphs.
