Don't Panic!

OopsHave you had one of those days when you check the time and simply panic? It's the time when "time" just simply got away and you are no where close to completing your deadline? or you're now running late for an important meeting? Sort of that feeling when you didn't hear the alarm go off and you're late for work or worst yet, late for the first day on a new job? Well, check, check, I've experienced all of the above and it is perhaps one of the worst feelings ever!

Here are my thoughts should this ever happen to you. Once you manage to gain composure from the brief panic attack, you realize you have a few choices. You could close your eyes and wish the situation away or face it head on! It's times like these we realize we are human. Not robots, but human. And while we all need to be disciplined and have a good handle of time management, there may come a situation or two when things don't go as planned.

When this happens, I suggest, take full responsibility for your actions and face the consequences. I realize this could be easier said than done, however, this is perhaps the only time you can set up an action plan to help remedy the situation (if possible). Did I hear you say, LIE? I won't suggest you LIE, but I won't hold judgement against you if you did, however, telling lies, in my opinion, can at times exasperate the situation. You may feel differently. Once you get through the situation where the time element is seemingly against you, there's an opportunity to learn ways to prevent this from being a repeat. That feeling of panic is not one to embrace, in fact, it's best to avoid it. The consequences can be extremely uncomfortable and in some cases quite costly.

There's and up side! You have what it takes to get through this and any circumstance that comes your way. Face the situation responsibly and take action. Things happen, you're only human!

Make it a great day!
