AYD - June 13, 2012 - When Draining Fast, Reset !

"I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant."
- Robert McCloskey

Somedays start off in a cloud of confusion.
Maybe right out of bed.
Maybe in those first 15 minutes at the office.
It's all the same.
And we find ourselves almost shaking our head in hopes of realigning the puzzle pieces before we have to say, "Can I have a do-over?"

Close your eyes tight, and click your heels together about 42 times. 
Nope...still here.

Okay, so just stop when you recognize things getting carried away. Stop.  Breathe.
And, for a moment, gather up the confusing pieces and quietly, mentally, put them into some sense of order for yourself.  Calmly identify all the things you are trying vainly to focus on at the same time....but do it one at a time. Breathe.

We must take these few moments to get our bearings,  even when we are in the trenches and the battle around us rages on.  We need to pause for Burn Out stages identification.  Connect with the moment, and then retake control of it.

It starts with recognition and awareness, while it ends with you calmly hitting a reset button.

Your morning, your rules.
"Pardon me Mr. Smith, but if we continue like this, I'm going to lose it !  Reset !"

And away we go.
Good morning
