You Are Your Biggest Work Stressor

Most people would blame work for the stress they're experiencing. But are you sure you're pointing a finger at the right culprit? Is it really the mountains of workload? Or is it your work habits?

You'll find that three office personalities are often the most stressed ones.
  • The buzzer-beater. These are people who wait until the last minute before starting work. It may work for some people, but for most people, it can be very stressful trying to produce quality work in a short span of time.
  • The brown noser. These are people who commit themselves to too many projects at once. Guess how much pressure they set themselves up for trying to meet multiple deadlines all at the same time.
  • The clutter bug. These are the people whose work stations look like it's been run over by a hurricane. Just looking at the mess can already be stressful, let alone try to work effectively in it.
If you find yourself guilty of being one of these people, then you might want to start looking in the mirror first before pointing your finger at what's causing your stress. Because quite frankly, it might be you.
