Appropriate Freakout

If someone brings up a potential worst-case scenario, potential product-killer, or other potentially terrible news, you can choose to react emotionally in the moment, or choose to embrace uncertainty.

Sure, this probably won’t feel great, but it’s also a possible outcome that was as equally possible whether or not you knew about it.

Hearing about this sooner than later not only is a total gift that allows you to better plan and strategize around it, but it also is not a sure thing.

So hold the freakout until it’s more likely that this potentiality is likely to become reality.

But if you’ve already taken this into account, created contingencies, and planned accordingly, perhaps it won’t be as freak-out worthy as you initially had thought.
