#4. Find a quick solution.

Many problems require an immediate or fast solution. By staying calm and giving yourself as much time as you have, you can find a quick solution to your problem.

• Remember to take a deep breath before you start reacting.

• Evaluate or assess the situation and any information about it as quickly as you can.

• For example, if your toilet overflows, you can check the tank or the bowl to see what the issue is. Likewise, if someone is yelling at you and it appears they might get aggressive, you can quickly figure out that it’s best to remove yourself from the situation.
