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 for help to overcome an obstacle.
I hate asking for help. I really struggle with it. Work appreciates that, but my wife sometimes gets on me to share with her and the family.
I’m working on it.
I had some chores to do recently, which I could have easily done. Well, not easily, but I likely wouldn’t have hurt myself. Mostly, I’m just slower by myself. I took time to ask my son to help. He’s happy to do it; I just needed to ask and schedule it with him.
It was nice to work on something together, and it went quicker. Hopefully it survives for a few years.
