Episode 7: Stress Isn't Sexy
Most people associate stress with being high-powered and productive. If you are constantly on-call and in demand then you re powerful. If you are powerful, that makes you sexy.
You have to break that link. People don't like to listen to you complain about how much work you have to do and how much chaos and clutter is going on in your life. When you are calm and organized you will be a more relaxed person. When you are not so frazzled, you can listen better. Break the pattern. Stress is not sexy.
