Afternoon Inqueery

AI: Putting Out Fires

My experience in lab the last few weeks has, for the most part, been one long string of expletives because the adage “when it rains, it pours” always seems to apply to equipment issues for us.  I don’t react all that well to an extended string of these issues, but I’ve found in some other settings, I’m energized by dealing with bumps in the road rather than exhausted by them.  Since I pretty much have crisis management on the brain right now, I’ll ask of you –

How, psychologically speaking, do you deal with minor crises at work and/or in your hobbies?  How do they affect your actions beyond the crises themselves?  Are there ever situations in which you enjoy them?

The Afternoon Inqueery (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Queereka community. Look for it every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 3pm ET.
