Levelheaded 头脑冷静的

    2018-01-16  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A: One of the companies we do business with has just gone bankrupt, and they owe us three months of payments for supplies.

B: Don’t panic. Let’s do a levelheaded assessment of the problem first.

Note: This idiom means “having or showing an ability to think clearly and to make good decisions.” Level, as in level playing field (a metaphor for fair play), literally means that the surface of something is perfectly flat and even. The surface of a lake on a windless day is level. Zen masters would liken the ripple-free lake water to their calm mind. Therefore, a levelheaded person is balanced, even-tempered and sensible.
