Stay on your toes as you interact with people. When dealing with an uncomfortable situation, a bluff comes more naturally than an apology. Act quickly if you hope to work your way through a narrowing window of opportunity, otherwise you could be in for a hard lesson. Pay close attention to both your personal and professional reputations. Someone may be trying to start something.
You need to remain as easygoing as you can today even if it feels like things are falling apart. While your friends and colleagues are panicking, you’re smiling to yourself knowing that this too will pass.
Slow and steady definitely does the trick, especially if you feel like you’re not quite ready to cross the finish line. Your time doesn’t matter, but the finished product does. Ask your partner for help if you need it.
Helping out your friends shouldn’t be an unusual occurrence. If it is, jump at an opportunity to do just that today. Give them whatever they need, from sweat to money to your ear.
