QTIP: Quit taking it personally! It’s just that simple. If someone asks you, “When will this be finished?” and you answer with a heavy sigh, eye roll, and a dramatic delivery, “Can’t you see I’m working as fast as I can on this?!” Perhaps you’ve not “QTIP-ed” it. When we go literal with our answer, the wounded, dramatic tone slips away. Otherwise we risk feeding the fire of defensiveness and the cycle perpetuates.
