I am open to managing all situations swiftly and effectively.
Every day of our lives, things just come up and we need to deal with them. I choose to manage these situations promptly in the best way I know how. I have several strategies I can rely on to help me assess and handle these distractions of the day.
First of all, I can reduce the stress of any situation by stopping for a moment to breathe and collect my thoughts. What do I know about the situation without making assumptions? Seeing it for what it is usually makes it more manageable.
I refuse to over-dramatize the situation and ask a million "What Ifs" that can lead to unnecessary worry. If prompt action is required, such as in an emergency, I immediately do what I can to help or diffuse the situation.
If the situation is caused by miscommunication, I use my communication skills to calm others and clarify all sides of the issue. If a conflict is involved, I use my negotiating skills and creativity to help find a solution that is good for all.
Sometimes I can handle a situation by simply delegating it to someone else. This is especially true in the workplace when work areas are specifically divided and assigned to certain people. If it does not apply to me, I do not get involved. Instead, I let others handle it.
These strategies reduce the confusion in my life and help me deal effectively with situations when they arise. I know that the quicker I can handle challenging circumstances, the faster I can get back to my regular schedule and doing what I want to do for the day.
Today, I plan to use my skills and creativity to handle unexpected situations quickly and to the best of my ability.
