Calm wins the day!
You’re in doubt? Think about a time you worked on a project at home or at work and you were frazzled. Now think of a time when you worked on a project at home or at work and you were calm.
Which one got done faster and at a higher quality level with the bonus that you really felt good about getting it done and you had energy left for the next project?
I bet you’ll say when you were calm!
Why? Because, when you are calm, the adrenalin is not flowing. Adrenalin excites excited the body, gets it into an “action” mode, uses up max resources but you pay one heck of a price. Wonder why you feel so tired so much of the time? One of the reasons is that you are likely working with adrenalin as your best friend. You think you’re getting a lot done but actually, you’re wearing yourself out!
