I really dislike people who are quick to panic. Getting worked up about things accomplishes a big, fat nothing. And never does. But many people continue to live their lives, day in and day out, getting worked-up about things and get nowhere fast.
In business, for example. My favourite pet client absolutely, positively loves to send over just about every e-mail message with the importance set at "high," which in most e-mail clients is represented by some form of icon. In my case, a red exclamation point.
When you see this icon perpetually, the sense of urgency is set aside. Fools, all of them.
