Hi there...I've been working on a document from hell...I was assigned this task two months ago because of my "talent with the client adn ability" and its just not been turning out...There is an IT project and the prime contractor who we work with has not been following the rules and standards. But we can't write that without alienating our relationship. I want to be ethical but not alienate the business relationships we have. I've been caught between a rock and a hard place for 6 weeks. I've been up at the wee hours and up a couple hours later and its getting better and its getting done but its been painful and difficult and stressful. My project lead micromanages to when she is stressed out...she has been analyzing every line and word of a 80 plus page document. It is PAINFUL.
But one thing I've learned in the last year is that there will always be variables that I can't control but I need to control my response. All I can do is try my best and to deal with each thing as it comes and not to numb the stress with FOOD. It is a string of painful projects like this that have made me obese and I will not let them get to me anymore.
How do you deal with work stress? life stress?
Not a real post, just a vent about life. I can't wait for this to be done.
