If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs . . . You may recognize the opening line from the poem If. Kipling wrote those words in 1895, yet today we know his advice was right on target. Approximately 2/3 of the population has no real-time awareness of their emotions. If you “keep your head” you increase the chance of a constructive response. Better to offer a thoughtful response than perform damage control for an emotional reaction. ─ Deb Miller
