To cut it short
Whether you work at a startup or at a well-established company, if you go to work everyday then you probably know that every job carries a certain amount of stress. All this technology has made us connected all the time and competition now is stronger than ever. A certain level of stress is considered healthy and can actually motivate you, but a lot of it can destroy your health, BIG TIME!
Alright so maybe you can’t escape job-related stress, but there’s always something that you can do to reduce its effect on you (you don’t want to end up dead like this startup founder).
Prioritize and set daily goals
Prioritizing will help you determine what you need to do, and setting goals will force you to focus on finishing the right tasks at the right time. This way, you’ll feel less stressed and much more relaxed when you go home!
No matter how hard you try, you can’t do it all by yourself. Delegate some of your responsibilities to others to avoid feeling anxious and upset all the time.
One way to get everything done on time so you can have a few hours to yourself everyday is by actually getting them done. Words to live by.
Always have a backup plan
Since things will not always go your way, it’s good to be prepared for the unexpected. Plan in advance, be flexible and try to find immediate solutions.
