Making Pressure Work For and Not Against You

Posted By Amy Warner, CausePlanet, Wednesday, September 21, 2016


Many factors have increased the perceived pressure on our lives: recent economic downturn; higher competition for jobs; advent of the global economy; lack of job stability; and growing competition to get into top colleges, universities and graduate programs.

Since it is impossible to live a life without pressure, the key is to understand your reactions to it and how those reactions put you at risk. Then you must engage in what Weisinger calls pressure management.
