FROM PANIC... TO POWER AND PEACE: SEVEN STEPS TO COPE WITH CHAOS... AND EMERGE A WINNER.
1. Don't take it personally
Business changes and management changes. That's the nature of hi-tech. But there's no return on spending time obsessing over who's to blame.
2.Assess your achievements
After every project, it's important to sort out the positives and negatives, and then integrate the lessons learned into your new project, job, or career.
3. Don't focus on the negative
There is a positive outlook in every situation, and it's important to focus on that before anything else. Look at what you have accomplished and what wouldn't have happened if you hadn't been there. This will encourage you to move forward to the next challenge.
4. Know when to give up
Truly believe that if you can't go through the barricade, you can go over it, you can go under it, or you can go around it. But you also need to step back when it's too hard. If you feel you are constantly pushing uphill or hitting your head against a wail, it's time to let go or to take a new approach.
5. Know your purpose
Focus on your long-term goals. Don't get caught up in one particular aspect of a project Take a step back and concentrate on the original purpose.
6. Balance your life
When a job or career isn't going as planned, it's important to have a satisfactory personal life to fall back on and to support you through the rough times. This can work both ways.
7.Keep exploring new avenues
Keep trying new things. There is always another angle or approach to a job. Try them all. You may just find the one that's right for you. Something even better than the old one.
So ...let change be a challenge to take you places. From chaos to comfort zone confidently.
