There are times when it seems like everything it’s falling apart. Times when everything seems like it’s not working. That even though you try nothing seems to go your way. In the heat of the moment the first impulse is to quit, or worse, react in a matter that will make things worse.
The takeaway here is that you must remember to calm down. Specially if you are leading a team. You must be calm so you can transmit that calm to your team and get a better sense of things, regroup and try again. Remember that the mantra “Calm is contagious” is something that you must use EVERY single time.
