Calm down; it’s worse than you think
Everyone at work knows it; you’re a person who is really good in an emergency. And that’s fortunate, since pretty much everything you touch turns into a disaster.
For people who don’t have quite as much experience in dealing with constant chaos, there is Kevin Daum. Mr. Daum is the Inc.com contributor who penned, “8 Ways to Stay Calm in the Midst of Chaos,” a concise a useful bit of badinage that provides an eight-step program to achieve Zen-like serenity in the face of a looming catastrophe.
“Whether you are the chaos creator or just caught in the fray,” writes Daum, “the best way you can bring sanity back to your team is to be an island of stability.” I agree. It would be much better for you to be perceived as an island of stability instead of a continent of insanity. (Don’t be put off just because you don’t have a team. Of course, if you did have a team, you’d have lots of people to hold responsible.)
