Survival Tip #68
Check the Emotion at the Door
Back when I coached goalies, one of the first things I taught them, after don’t suck, was check your emotion at the door. There are a lot of times in life where anger, or happiness can fuel you forward. Anger especially in a fight or flight situation, but emotion clouds judgment and impairs logic. If you don’t have full use of common sense and rationale you will likely find yourself dead. Every time you let emotion rule your decision you are risking your life. Find the calm center of your universe and center yourself there. Let logic prevail and keep your emotion in check.
