Keep calm and move on

  1. Focus on the end goal — It’s easy to get lost on low picks and lose focus on the bigger picture. Think of the end goal, the outcome you’re looking for.
  2. Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook — Let the other side finish off their part. Listen first. It’s your “jab, jab, jab” mode. When they’re done, then you bring your viewpoint (your right jab)
  3. Be positive — If you remain positive during the discussion, the other party will calm down as he has already finished his anger (refer to point 2).
  4. Count 1:10 — Yes, counting 1 to 10 is a well-known trick, but I cannot follow the same. It’s too much t count, and I feel I will lose out on critical points to listen to if I focus on counting.
  5. Be professional — Whatever the situation, it’s your choice to upset or remain professional. It’s your choice — choose well.
