Urgency becomes panic when we:
- forget the purpose of our work (and life)
- attempt to please people who don’t care
- don’t have a plan
- think the business is responsible for our work-life well being (instead of us)
- sustain a focus on what’s not working instead of what is
- allow our value to be determined through the judgments of others
- believe that in order to win others must lose
- lack structure
- forget that our effectiveness requires that we are first confident
- forget the words: I need help.
Succeeding in business requires urgency. To panic is a choice.
