Learned something from one of my greatest teachers, my son.
Last night he saw I was stressing over some deliverables. Here is how it went:
Cole: You look stressed about work.
Me: Yeah, there are a few things that I need to finish and I’m stressn’
Cole: I learned at work today that when you feel stressed, it’s because you’re trying to control an outcome. If instead, you think about how you are contributing, your perspective changes, and you can feel excited about it.
Me: Ha! I feel it! Yeah. Thanks, Cole.
Cole: I love my job.
Me: I love you.
