I'm a perfectionist by nature.
Always have been and probably always will be.
This is probably why I'm good at my job. I always want everything done properly, which also means that my clients are happy. If my clients are happy, then I'm happy.
Today, I had a client send me a pretty nasty email, which rattled me a bit. There's been a lot of back and forth on the project we're working on, and when they finally made a decision to move forward, the product they wanted was no longer in stock. Without completely boring you with the ins and outs of what I do at work, I can tell you that this happens a lot! Most people are understanding, realize it's not the end of the world, and work with me to find a solution.
Other people are just so difficult to work with, and no matter what, you just can't win. It's frustrating, especially because it just takes one negative person to change how you feel about the day. Honestly, when these kinds of situations arise at work, taking a few minutes away from the computer really helps me calm down at feel better equipped to tackle whatever the issue is.
It was finally nice enough outside (or so I thought) to snap some outfit photos! I ended up having to throw the coat back on pretty quickly once those winds picked up. The sun was shining, so I think that's what fooled me into thinking it was a nice day.

How do you manage to keep your cool at work when a client or co-worker just pushes your buttons?
