Blogging stresses me out – why that’s a good thing

I traveled most of today so I couldn’t blog until now. And all day it stressed me out.

I think that’s a good thing. It shows that I care about blogging and living up to my expectations of blogging every weekday.

I think there’s a direct correlation between how much you stress about something and how much you care about it.

If you’re working on a project and you’re not stressed out about the outcome, my guess is that you don’t care much about it.

If you don’t stress out about what your boss thinks about your performance, you’re probably in the wrong job and don’t care.

Stress, to a certain extent, is a very good thing to experience. It shows that you give a damn.

What are your thoughts about the correlation between stress and how much you care about something?

  1. I never thought much about it, but I tend to agree. I don’t worry is a productive thing but a little stress is a good sign probably.
