Daily Coping 22 Jul 2020

I’ve started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.

Today’s tip is to write your worries down and save them for a specific “worry time”.

What am I worried about? Not much, and my worries are really small. I worry my daughter won’t get to experience college this fall, including sports, and I won’t get to watch her play. I’m worried my middle kid won’t get a job when he graduates next year. I’m worried my oldest will get sick, or stuck, in Spain this year where he’s supposed to teach. Or that he won’t go.

Mostly I worry that I won’t be able to get back to my way of life, speaking, travel, coaching, and snowboarding. This is a good way to write a few things down, and I’ll worry about these on the weekend, when I can have a drink with my wife and complain about things.
