Mark Cuban said, “If you want to be successful, reduce the stress of others around you.” He said that is the best thing you can do if you work for an entrepreneur or really for anyone if you want to get ahead. I have to agree. I want to reduce the stress of those around me because in doing so I make their lives better. And, I want the people I work with to reduce my stress and make my life better.
There is always a temptation to push tasks and responsibilities off to someone else rather than trudging through them and figuring it out. We must resist that temptation. Instead, we must look for tasks and responsibilities we can shoulder for our coworkers, helping one another and reducing each other’s stress.
