Stress Set

One of the questions we get a lot from candidates in interviews is “What’s the toughest part about working here?” I like to answer with something along the lines of…

 

“It can sometimes be a challenge being in a fast paced and agile company, because in every department you have to be able to roll with the punches, and change directions in a moment’s notice. At times you have to be willing to abandon old ways, blaze new trails, or pivot in an instant.”

 

For some this may come naturally, and for others it may not. If it does sometimes stress you out though, rest easy knowing that a recent study from the University of California, San Francisco found that short bursts of stress can actually be beneficial to us. Just like a muscle, as long as there are rest periods in between, “working out” our stress levels can build the theoretical muscle. This has proven to heighten productivity and attention to detail, acting similarly to bursts of adrenaline, and making us more resilient with every "stress set."

 

So next time you feel a little stressed, remember three things:

  1. You’re experiencing what not everyone is able to handle, hence why you work here.(yay!)
  2. Your stress workout is getting you theoretically jacked
  3. And finally, you have a whole team of Crusaders on your side to back you up! Don’t be afraid to call for a spotter (;
