I have developed a small trick that works for me. I get virtually zero stress, my girlfriend has bad anxiety but has been helping her a little.

First, understand that each day is 24 hours. No matter how much someone says it is simply not possible to do more in one day than 24 hours. Minus sleep and eating you only get so much time.

Second, you are only as good as you are right now. You may get better in the future and you are probably better than you were yesterday. However, we are not perfect or super human.

Finally, I try and do what I can, I can not do more than that. Once I have given my time and effort that is it. If it was enough great, if not oh well nothing more I could of done.

That's it, if I fail I fail, if I succeed I succeed. But if I stress out or panic I do worse. So I just relax and work. If I fail, I practice.

Then repeat.

 

"Second, you are only as good as you are right now. You may get better in the future and you are probably better than you were yesterday. However, we are not perfect or super human."

Totally agree!

 

I had a person tell me once that all stress is self generated. Perhaps that's true to some extent, but there exists plenty of clueless managers. Managers are responsible for the work environment! If your environment sucks and you can't take it any longer, find a new job.

 
 

What are you most stressed about? I feel that's the first step in finding ways to handle it

Let's Talk About Passion

Too many articles offer misguided advice on passion. Let's set the record straight. Here's a more nuanced view on passion, which I hope will be encouraging in its own right too.
