Not all stress is harmful.
Stress can be good when it stimulates
creativity and motivation,
excitement and satisfaction.
Harness stress instead of fighting it.
Be more realistic about your expectations.
Don’t try to always be perfect.
Don’t be overly self-critical.
Aim towards the average or expected performance for any given job, instead of trying to excel or set a new record.
Here’s the secret
why top managers
are under less stress than middle managers:
they are in control,
instead of the task controlling them.
They enjoy a sense of accomplishment
when the job is done.
To do this:
get in early on the planning of any project
and see your part through to the end.
This will give you a sense of completion.
