How Tight is Your Top?

On August 5th, 2014, posted in: BIZ-TIP, Productivity by 0 Comment

Some people seem to blow their top with the least little bit of provocation. They’re like a pressure cooker with the regulator jiggling madly away. You tread softly around these people because you don’t want to get caught in the fallout when their anger explodes.

Almost everyone gets angry from time to time. Being able to control your anger and use it wisely is a real sign of maturity.listen

Consider this approach:

  • Be quick to listen – Misinterpretation is a frequent cause of misunderstandings so make sure that what you heard is what they meant to say.
  • Be slow to speak – Think about what you’re going to say before you say it remembering that once the words are spoken they can never be recalled.
  • Be slow to anger – Keep anger as a last resort because once the conversation escalates it’s unlikely to moderate again.

There is a time and a place for righteous anger. Save it for the true injustices in the world and then channel it in a way that could bring about an improvement in the situation.
