I’m looking for anyone in the workforce (both tech and non-tech) who’s willing to talk about how you manage stress in your day-to-day life (or don’t), and what you wish you had at work to help you relax and focus. Are you in control of your emotions? Or are they in control of you? How do you manage any anxiety, depression, or relationship issues?
Let’s chat! DM me please :-)
For your participation and time chatting with me, you will be automatically entered for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card.
PS: I’m no longer at Amazon to clarify; and PPS: this is for a research project— looking for folks who’re willing to spend some time talking about this topic seriously.
PPS: Research is ongoing, so please feel free to contact me—whether you’re reading this the same day I posted this topic versus few weeks later. Thank YOU!
- Microsoft JFCOverall, stop taking shit so seriously.
Take a minute and think about how absurd our jobs in tech really are. Almost everything we do doesn't *actually* matter, most of us aren't saving lives or rescuing kidnapped children. We all just do our best then go home and enjoy our lives.
You know what this week's problems turn into if they don't get fixed? Next week's problems.
If you have a problem, can you do something about it?
- Yes? Then don't worry about it.
- No? Then don't worry about it.
This attitude might sound flippant, but it's saved my career.

- Microsoft / Eng DeviousOpsHmmm you with at Amazon... I am not sure that your problem is real stess... But the fact that ppl are treated like shit there...
You can try to:
Go to gym
Do some full contract martial art/sport
Herb induced meditation (weed)
Yoga (every time I see those asses on spandex I forget everything)
P.S. If you want to learn how to deal with your problems in a bit more relaxed way, the balkan way, let me know... But probably you will get fired if you do...
