Quick Tip: Don’t Bite The Hand That Feeds You


Just like anything that means a lot to you, the pursuit of education can lead to a lot of heated (and dare I even say “emotional?”) situations. Whether you’re upset about a grade, a system time-out, funding, timing, deadlines… the sky is the limit.

Today’s tip is all about keeping a level head. When any of the above (or any other things) get you down, keep your cool and try to address the problem at its root. Come up with a list of points so you don’t forget anything and contact the person who you think can best help you address the issues you’re bringing to the table. ¬†Realize that the person on the other end of the phone line (or other side of the desk) is there to help, so have a calm conversation; don’t let your frustration get the best of you!

You’ll find that if you approach situations like these with a level head, you’re more likely to get more out of them. ¬†Go ahead, try it!
