Panic is the word that I am going to discuss today…! I know we all panic at one or the other way at certain time and situation…but what about panicking even before something happens…mere coz you are a negative thinker!!!!?
“Cowardice, as distinguished from panic, is almost always simply a lack of ability to suspend the functioning of the imagination.” ~ Ernest Hemingway
I have so far in life met two such people…who have no patience and just get panic if things don’t work at the first attempt…! This I am discussing because very closely I have met people like this…and I have seen how they become impatient at certain small things and tell to themselves…’ok cool…down…cool down!! Once this happened in front of me and I was laughing assuming he was joking…but no that’s how he keeps himself out of panicking and still he gets restless …I was wondering if such people suffer from anxiety attack ..or so!
“Anxiety is love’s greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.” ~ Anais Nin
The second person I have found is who often kind of gives a warning…I don’t know things are not going to work…we are going to be falling behind schedule…hello!!!! Can’t we at least make an attempt first…? And each time this person gives this red signal I watch out for my project plan and disaster recovery plan. And by the time I find things through my grape wine sources…the guy gives me a smile saying…its working now but am not sure further! C’mon man are you trying my patience or…you are just not confident about anything of yourself!!!
“Patience is waiting. Not passively waiting. That is laziness. But to keep going when the going is hard and slow – that is patience.”
As they say…in the end…the one who attempts and makes the effort gets to taste the sweetness of success….!
And me as a project manager get to give everyone the good news that we are safely landing 😀
“Panic plays no part in the training of a nurse.” ~ Elizabeth Kenny
Now I understand what is working under pressure hahaha….
“A diamond is a chunk of coal that is made good under pressure.” ~ Henry Kissinger
though I never did in my life…as for me work should be enough to keep busy oneself at the same time one should have lots of fun just like I had today….not what I said above but a real fun with jokes and making some new friends @ the helpdesk support guys!!!
