Bad things happen. And earlier this year, they KEPT happening.

It was as if I jumped out of an airplane with two parachutes and both of them failed.

Yet, as I plummeted towards the ground I was calm. One friend even said, “I’m surprised how zen you are about this.”

Why? HOW?!

We all know sometimes bad things just happen. Maybe a deadline comes up and your computer crashes. Maybe your biggest client cancels his contract. Maybe you stubbed your toe ($%#$ MY TOE!)

In situations like this, we’re tempted to curse, fight, point fingers, and worse, completely lose it. We know its counterproductive but we can’t control ourselves.

And that’s why I’m going to share 3 things to remember when everything goes wrong plus the one technique I use to right the ship.
