Find Some Humour
When we take ourselves too seriously, situations at work can get pretty heavy. We jump to conclusions and take random comments to heart and react as though they were criticism. This immediate reaction occurs especially when we are very busy and many deadlines are looming.
When we are passionate about our work, we begin to identify ourselves with our work and end up in the perfectionism trap. On the other hand we know that we live in an imperfect world, so why must we be perfect? Is this the ego at work? Time to forgive yourself for being imperfect and look on the lighter side. Look for the ridiculous here.
Finding the humour in situations means not wasting emotional energy trying to be perfect, hiding our anger or feeling guilty, A good laugh will clear the slate, and put us back on an even keel.
