Did you ever get overly excited about something, only to be met with indifference? Well, you might be doing yourself some harm there.
Getting over excited is a good way to get noticed, but not such a great way to be taken seriously
When I get too excited about something; logic seems to go out the window, careful planning walks out the door and thoughtfulness flies away. People notice this, and often rightly assume that it is just a passing furor. But what if it’s not? What if you are really onto something there? Then do yourself a favour and follow these emergency procedures:
Stop, think and then act: the procedures prescribed to scuba divers when dealing with an emergency.
Stop: Take a step back and consider what’s happening.
Think: Where am I? What am I doing? what should I do?
Act: Decide on a course of action. Execute.
You might be wondering why you should apply “emergency procedures” to over excitement. It’s simple, in an emergency we tend to panic, not think clearly and rush into decisions without thinking them through. In other words, the way we react in an emergency and the way we behave when we are excited, are the same.
