It’s always better to stay cool instead of getting fired up in a stressful situation. This is something that can be easy to forget in the heat of the moment, though. As I get older, I’ve gotten much better at keeping my emotions in check, letting rational thought do most of the driving…but once in a while, the old fire still sneaks up on me. Today, for example, the day job was quite stressful; it wasn’t easy keeping cool, but I did, and I got through it. When in doubt, think of Mr. Spock from Star Trek: choosing logic over emotion is a civilized way to live. It saves you from making huge mistakes and throwing away positive gains because of a moment’s misguided mood. It is only logical, Captain. See you soon.
