Career Zingers 28: Don’t Lose Your Head

Engage with Equanimity

Equanimity is mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation. Alexander Zverev, a powerful young German tennis player, uses a Head racket and lost his “head” on the court with a smash in tennis that was not pretty, especially for his head and his Head racket. On your career path you will encounter many setbacks. Expect them. Learn from them. Move on from them. Just be careful that you don’t let one setback make you lose your head and compound one setback into multiple setbacks and a major career loss.
