This past week I wrote an article filled with tips on Coping with Crisis. You don’t have to admit it, but I know, we’ve all been there! Some, unfortunately, are living with it day in and day out lately. Since I shared mine, I wanted to get some thoughts of yours. So we asked around on Twitter and Facebook and here’s what others had to say about getting though the rough patches!

Remain Calm and Carry On. It’s on a board that hangs in our kitchen.
Tylenol case is still the best 20 years on – Dominoes last year did well – Toyota recent awful.
Believe in yourself. One of the hardest things I’ve had to struggle with in BigLaw is maintaining resilience in the face of different forms of defeat.
As a boss, what you do after losing your job is more telling about your character that what you did while working.

Stay in the moment……the mind tends to extrapolate the worst outcome. That rarely happens. Focus on what you can control and pursue those activities…..you will feel better
And from my beloved uncle who has “been there and done that” more than you can imagine in his life!:
A few prayers wouldn’t hurt. Neither would a strong workout but you really hit the key ones and oh yes never quit trying. There are always many different ways to tackle a problem and this is where your brainstorming enters. There are many different ways of reaching the number 5. List them all and you would be surprised how many new pathways that you previously hadn’t thought of now appear. When you think you’ve run out of ideas take a break and turn your mind off and then come back and try to look at the problem differently. If that doesn’t work then smoke a Joint—. Love ya.
