I can’t help but wonder why stress is so important to us? Why do we believe that running around stressed all the time is proof of our devotion to success and achieving our goals? Should stress really be a positive measure of productivity? The amusing this is that I most likely just stressed many of you out by asking three questions in a row, without providing any answers. We don’t like unknowns and we find it very unsettling to leave questions hanging. I think that this must be what stresses my students out the most. The first day of class, I lay out all the assignments, requirements, and expectations that my students will have to meet throughout the course. Then I leave them with “more details will come as we get closer to individual assignments.” I can feel the stress meters go up! Will it be hard? What will the paper entail, what do the tests look like, will I have enough time in between due dates? What if I get sick?

Hi Mark,

There's certainly something to be said for trading quantity for quality. This said, I'm not sure it follows that stress will decrease as a result. The stress of creating only the best replaces the stress of trying to get a huge amount of stuff done. Perhaps some of this is only natural, the result of trying to put the best into your business. Thanks for sharing with the BizSugar community.
