Honestly evaluate the way you respond to crisis situations. Are you happy with the way you react?
Truth be told while I am telling everyone else not to panic I am on a full blown panic rampage internally. I think that's rather normal though. Gut instinct is to panic in a crisis situation and while most of us settle into an acceptable level of not panicking I think we all start out a bit panicked.
Unfortunately the full blown panic is rather quickly replaced by thoughts of puppies, kittens, shiny things, slimey things and anything else that can possibly run through my mind, I have a terrible time focusing on things anytime but if those things are unpleasant you can multiply that times ten. I would much rather think about happy things and my brain is typically the brains of this operation, who would've guessed….
Happy with my process??? Not entirely, but somehow I quite often end up being the voice of reason. I have never quite figured out why but for some reason I have a calming effect on chaos. Hind sight being 20/20 and all it may have a lot to do with the fact that I am the one telling people to “Calm The Fuck Down!!!”. I would like to think that it's some crazy zen like energy I put off, but I highly doubt it 🙂
