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 look for new reasons to be positive about the week ahead.
I have a few reasons.
It’s the holiday season. I have plenty of work, but less deadlines and pressures this time of year. All of this means that while I need to keep getting things done every day, I have less stress. This means I can look forward to making progress on various things without the stress of feeling I have to get a particular thing done this week.
I’ve scheduled lunch with a friend, so I’m looking forward to that.
My volleyball team is coming together and making progress, so I’m enjoying the time with them, less frustration and more continuing to work on improving play.
I’m also traveling this week, heading to the SQL Server and Azure SQL Conference in Vegas, which is exciting.
I’m looking forward to a good week.
