#3 Nothing is ever as good or as bad as it seems

When you look back at your career, time eases your perspective of the highest highs and the lowest lows. From getting the promotion to a project spiraling out of control, in the moment, it is the best thing ever or the worst thing imaginable. As a leader, large swings in emotion dramatically affect you and your project. In addition to taxing you mentally, emotions create overconfidence and lack of confidence that can lead to less than stellar decisions.   Celebrate, grieve, and learn.  Always keep it as close to the middle of the road as you can.  Time will ease your perspective and the long-term successes and failures will help you grow as a person.  These experiences will apply to events in your future where the decisions you make will take you to the next level of leadership.
