Be Calm And…

A colleague sent me this quote:

The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.”

— James Allen,
British philosophical writer

Tranquility describes a calm nature. I value it in others especially during tense times. I try to model it as well.

If I remain calm, I’m less likely to say things or do things I will regret later.

If I remain calm, I think better. I consider a broader range of alternatives. I anticipate consequences better.

If I remain calm, I find relief faster. Whatever has caused my tension has happened. Regretting, chastising, criticizing, cussing, busting stuff up is all wasted energy. If I remain calm, I can move ahead.

If I remain calm, my teammates will follow my lead.  They will join me as we make a plan to move ahead.

Calm is contagious. It inspires trust and confidence.

There are times for impassioned reactions. They have their places. But, calm has a power all its own.
