In a crisis 17/1

How do I respond in a crisis?

If the crisis is my fault, I tell myself off and sleep badly ’til it’s over. If the crisis is caused by incompetence, I get angry. If the crisis involves children, I don’t rest until I find a solution. If the crisis involves missing my favourite tv programme, I become a Fury. A whirling dervish of panic; a blubbering heap. Inconsolable.
