Feeling Stressed? Use Jeff Bezos' Simple Technique
99% of people think stress comes from hard work.
Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, says it's not.
Here's the one simple technique he uses to overcome it:
“Stress primarily comes from not taking action over something that you can have some control over.
So if I find that some particular thing is causing me to have stress, that's a warning flag for me.
What it means is there's something that I haven't completely identified, perhaps in my conscious mind, that is bothering me, and I haven't yet taken any action on it.
I find as soon as I identify it and make the first phone call or send off the first email message or whatever it is that we're going to do to start to address that situation, even if it's not solved, the mere fact that we're addressing it dramatically reduces any stress that might come from it.
So stress comes from ignoring things that you shouldn't be ignoring.
Stress doesn't come from hard work, for example.
You can be working incredibly hard and loving it, and likewise, you can be out of work and incredibly stressed over that.”
