Stress Anecdote

Stress can be viewed as the fever that comes with overwork, trying to reach too many goals at the same time, and working with difficult peers and superiors. When you learn to release your frustrations harmlessly, you are lowering the fever by reducing the stress that has accumulated within you. For example, assume that you build the stress within you to a level where action is required. What do you do? You release the stress through some form of activity, recreation, or just getting away for a short time. Releasing stress lowers the fever. Then, by rebuilding yourself physically (through more activity), you also recover your positive attitude. In other words, one answer to burnout is managing stress by releasing your frustrations without having to cut back on your productivity.

In summary, this chapter has attempted to show you why you should try to release your frustrations harmlessly. Its purpose has been to help you avoid self-victimization so you maintain the positive, productive relationships that will further, not hinder, your career progress.
