Be watchful today and don’t allow your frustrations to blow up simply because you’re tired from the lack of sleep. The constant fighting can be exhausting, especially when you’re fighting a battle that isn’t even a skirmish. You made your bed and yes on some fronts you have to lay in it. But not all situations are alike. There are some things worth fighting for, but there are others where you need to carefully choose your battles. Be calm and make sure you’re thinking through each conflict and fight the ones you know you can win. Leave the others for another day.
When you’re exhausted, you’re not thinking clearly. So don’t make assumptions concerning planned events, such as meetings, appointments or anything that isn’t a face to face conversation. Your tired grumpy attitude could cause you to feel trouble when there’s no conflict in the first place. If it’s not your job to take care of it, then don’t take responsibility for it. And don’t fight that war if it’s not your place to do so.
It’s easy to think you’re the center of the Universe, and it might be a shock, but it’s not all about you! Stop feeling as though you’re the target here. You’re only a small piece of the puzzle that has someone upset and frustrated. And they’re not the center of the Universe either. So don’t pick a fight with someone who feels their back is against the wall. If they have no escape, they might fight even harder to put a target on someone’s back to save their own behind.
The person with the cool head who can calmly and precisely give the facts without emotion will control the day. The one who keeps their composure and presents the facts and only the facts will quietly rise up and direct the course of action. Be the one who can step up and lead. When you have both the authority and cool mind to precisely describe the conflict without emotion, your position takes gains influence. Come at the situation from a calm strength of character, not from excessive passion, yelling or intimidation. No one likes to be yelled at with an authoritative voice, that sounds like it’s accusing others of wrong doing.
At the same time, don’t be the one who sits back and gets yelled at because you’re perceived as weak and vulnerable. You can maintain a confident tranquil response and still be forceful if threatened. “You don’t want to go there and start placing blame for mistakes made by others.” can be a very effective way to push back without threatening the other side into raising their swords. Battles are won from a place of logic and intelligence, not blind brute force. Anger removes the ability to think through a conflict. So remain level headed and you’ll be able to think your way through the argument without damage to your own position.
To solve a problem you must focus on the situation, not the blame. That’s only a diversion and it doesn’t solve the issue. It wastes time, which wastes more money. Keep the focus on what the actual issue is and how it must be resolved. If there must be some accountability, take that outside and keep it within the family. Don’t air dirty laundry in public. It’s a sure fire way of losing respect and any influence you may have had in the long run.
If you can keep your emotion in check, you’ll have a better chance to remain calm and stick to the issues. You’ll end the day with a stronger reputation for being the perfect person to get the job done and guiding the way in the future. You’ll take some of the self imposed stress off your shoulders and release the anxiety that’s been keeping you awake. Then give yourself a break and get a good nights sleep. Things will look much better and brighter tomorrow.
