Turning all the negative energy into a positive one can make you work well, ultimately straightening up all the issues and things for you.

ASSESS AND PLAN YOUR STEPS:

Whenever you end up in a situation which you comprehend is not easy to deal with, then you have to assess and evaluate the whole thing properly. You have to understand the issue, set priorities, making yourself sure that the very first thing you have to concentrate on should be dealt first. Your correct decision making is important in resolving the issue. After you figure out the main issue to be dealt first, you need to set your mode of action by planning your steps. This may help you to a great deal in figuring out the whole issue and makes your task at hand much easier.

A Hub I have an interest in where Pressure is the greater problem than stress..I believe people know when they are stressed, but pressure can go un-noticed because it builds up over time almost by stealth.Stress is often recognised because all companies should have contingences for it.But pressure is a more personal thing.

Hi Coyoterainmaker...Pressure indeed is a personal thing which grows up with time.We must learn to deal with it so that neither we nor the others around should get effected too much by it.

Thank you for your feedback.Much appreciated!!!

Thank you for the hub. It is very important to discern how critical a situation actually is at work. I know what it feels like to have to make a decision immediately for the sake of a client's health. Actually swimming or walking would be very helpful to relieve pressure.

This is a great hub. Years ago I supervised 6 female subordinates; there was never a dull moment. They ranged in age from 21 - 50+. I felt like I was running a daycare center for the hormonally-challenged! But I loved every minute. Ninety percent of the time, I had to react quickly and appropriately; there wasn't time to develop and implement strategy. I did this job for 13 consecutive years, and all I can say now is "wow"! And you are absolutely correct: "you have to understand how to manage your emotions, your reactions, and how to work well under pressure." There were times when I wanted to hug them; there were also times when I wanted to call 911 for what I "wanted" to do to them. Keep up the good work!
