    Great post! It is so true that things often turn out better when we are presented with another course to take, and that happens when we are focused on the desired outcome.

    Barrie, I like the comments you made in the second item under to simple ways to deal with not hitting the panic button. For me, when things are not going as planned, I like to step away from the situation and analyze what has happened. Like you said Barrie, sometimes you just need a detour or a different way to achieving the same thing. Whatever happens I always keep in mind that I can still achieve the results I am aiming for. Keeping that thought, and always speaking helps me from not hitting the panic button.

    Great post and love the way you have described everything to do with hitting that panic button. I can’t ever remember being that stressed about anything as have always been a calm person but as you say the world will not end if things don’t go right. Take that detour and you will still get there in the end. Thanks for sharing.

      It takes a lot for me to get stressed like that these days Merle.

    Stressing out is not productive, trying to find a way around a problem is a much better use of our time. Great post Barrie.

      I agree that being productive is the most important thing. Whatever distracts from that is detrimental to progress so we should avoid it at all costs!

    I have often found myself EXACTLY as you describe – especially dealing with the internet. I get mad, panic, assume it’s ME and that I’ll NEVER get it. I shout, write in CAPITAL letters to support and want to stamp on the computer.

    You have some great insights Barrie. Thx.

      Some of it is thanks to Diane H. I used to get so worked up in the past until I realized it actually DOESN’T help an awful lot. I get SO much more done when I stay calm and do things logically.
