84/365 – ” Is your stress helping or hurting you? ”
Not much went right today.
We left the house late.
Our truck battery was flat.
We got stuck in peak-hour traffic.
And to top it all off, I managed to lock myself out of the studio… forcing the entire team to wait in the hallway for 20 minutes while the superintendent came with the master key.
Unsurprisingly, I spent most of the morning stressing about how behind schedule we were.
The stress wasn’t helpful. It didn’t make the team work faster, think better, or accomplish more. All everyone could do was put in the best effort possible and hope that it would be enough.
Thankfully, it was more than enough. Despite the delays, we finished ahead of schedule. The stress, in this case, was completely unnecessary.
