Eliminate negative emotions.

When working on projects, it is perfectly natural to feel negative emotions. However, these emotions are counterproductive to your goals, so they must be eliminated and replaced with positive emotions so you can achieve your goals.

Resolve situations that cause you to feel negative emotions so you can sidestep these emotions entirely and focus on your work.
