In which a very short observation about work is made

In the past, it was implied (by some former coworkers) that I should be frantic and panicked and such when organizing events.  In fact, when I failed to exhibit outward signs of panic, I was told I was doing a bad job (contra to what one would think being a professional would mean).

Today there was a pretty important event.  It went well.  We also hit our target for number of people.

In the run-up to the event, I was not frantic or panicked.  My blood pressure did not increase (for the most part).  I remained calm.

Conclusion:  Getting panicked and worked up about events is unnecessary.  Remaining relaxed is more fun and just as – if not more – effective and professional.

That is all.

    In my experience you do a better job when you are calm. The higher you get on the crisis cycle, the more brain function you loose.
    If you are panicking, everyone around you will begin to panic as well. If you are calm, they will remain more calm.

    What was the event?
    Where do you “work”?

    Sorry, Eric, for now, that one has to be discovered by other means. I am trying to maintain SOME distance between work and this blog.
