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 notice the things you do well, however small.
I do often try to do a good job, even if it’s not quick or easy. Lately, around the house I’ve been working to cook different meals, which the family has enjoyed. I’ve also had to do some maintenance on engines, which is simple, but I try to do a good job and managed to avoid spilling oil around as I changed it from a couple ranch vehicles.
I’ve been keeping on top of scheduling various items at work, trying to get ahead of my deadlines, and make it easier for others that are waiting on me.
I also managed to set my out of office for all of my recent absences, both for email and slack. That’s not something I’ve typically been good at, so I’m proud that I’m getting better.
