    Whenever I have a meeting with the big boss (or with others when the big boss is there), I always get nervous. I feel my face getting warm, my chest has this fuzzy feeling inside... and then I mutter, can't say things right, and can't present a project. Not only that, I become disorganize :o

    I usually don't have a problem with this but I don't know why I have a problem when it's with the big boss...

    What can I do to help myself calm down before a meeting?

    You get nervous because you care, if you didn't give a damn about the consequenses then you could behave perfectly normal.

    You sure? Because sometimes I feel like I'm overreacting and that there shouldn't be anything to be nervous about.

    :o

    I probably look like a fool.

    Probably because you feel like you're being judged and so you get nervous thinking about how you are going to impress them. Same way a guy gets nervous when talking to a girl he's interested in.

    Although this may not be the reason why, it's a good way of trying to get passed it. Go in there with a "who cares" kind of attitude. Do what you need to do and get out of there. Don't over think it.

    I am probably over-thinking it... and if this is how a guy feels when they want to talk to a girl -- I can understand why they avoid it! XD

    I get that way about presentations. For me I just hate public speaking though. I could have everything laid out perfectly than as soon as I am about to go up I get this and lose everything I had laid out.

    I was nervous at first with my boss, but then I realized I didn't care that much because he didn't matter all that much. Plus I know there's nothing to worry about because I kick ass at what I do, hell I do it better than he does.

    So we get on well.
