12: Staying Calm

I have been having problems getting my screen shots right for the next edition of Project 2013 and one problem is that PaintShop Pro can produce CMYK TIF files but not at the best definition.  My publisher told me that Photoshop Essentials could do the trick so I’ve just bought it only to find that while it does everything else brilliantly it doesn’t produce CMYK files, I need the full version of Photoshop which is was too expensive. Stay calm, we will be able to work something out.

The Way  
The wise project manager is guided by what he feels and not by what he sees happening around him.  Stay still and calm and be guided by your inner feelings, not what you are being told.  When we take time to reflect, the way becomes clearer, for this is the way of the project manager. 

Galloping and hunting madden the heart.  
Desires lead one astray.  
Therefore the sage is guided by his stomach,  
And not his eye.  
He discards the one and holds the other.  

“The Way of the Project Manager” by John Carroll (ISBN 978-1481076111), is published by CreateSpace and available from Amazon in hard copy and on Amazon Kindle.

Such an advocate of staying calm in stressful situations. Once your head goes as a PM those around you will start to follow suit. Stay calm and you will be able to make a much more informative decision.
