When your hair is on fire
The best time to make a decision isn’t when your hair is on fire. First, put out the fire. When things are in crisis mode, it’s easy to assume a quick decision will alleviate the urgent need and set right whatever needs to be fixed. But rarely are good decisions made when the wheels are falling off and the Lizard Brain is screaming to run.
What IS a good thing to do is to reach out to a friend/trusted co-worker and ask for help. This is especially true before your coiffure ignites.
