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

0

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!
