I 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. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to ask a friend how they have been feeling lately.
The last couple weeks have been crazy, both at work and in my personal life. I’ve heard from quite a few people about the events at Redgate. It’s been hectic and overwhelming at times.
However, I also know there are some people that I haven’t contacted in some time. I know a friend had a rough Q4 last year, and I hadn’t heard from them, so I decided to reach out and just wish them well. This turned into a short, but nice conversation about how we each were coping with current things.
Worth the effort on my part.
