Give yourself an hour to cool off before responding to someone who has provoked you. It if involves something really important, give yourself overnight.
Good advice or not?
Easier said than done?
Not that I’m looking to be provoked; I’m looking for ways to give myself a break.
I don’t deserve to be provoked by anyone, and most certainly, I choose to stop compounding the issue with a rude response.
Now the big decision: how large should I write this on my office bulletin board so I’ll see it before I respond?
“Take charge of your attitude. Don’t let someone else choose it for you.”
