What I've Been Thinking About Lately #16

Weekly thoughts on a Friday

Worrying about work is more draining than actually doing work. People who work for 2 hours and stress about how much they hate it the other 6 hours are often more burnt out than passionate startup founders who pound pavement for months at a time. Being burnt out and not accomplishing anything is the worst of both worlds but sadly appears to be some of the most common sentiment among the American Workforce.

Things that cause embarrassment will lose their sting over time and even become comedic. When you fuck up, it's best to recognize, "Eventually I will laugh at this", because it allows you to see a way through the shame that feels as if it'll never go away. Good leaders, partners, and friends will help you do this and bad ones will constantly remind you of them.
