How To Make Stress My Friend

This Ted Talk given by Kelly McGonigal, a health psychologist made me think of how I might make career decisions in the future.  She said, “chasing meaning is better for your health than trying to avoid discomfort.” I wouldn’t want to settle for a menial job with little responsibility and no stress, but rather pursue a job that requires responsibility with a healthy amount of stress that will have a lot of reward. I love this quote and I have it written on a sticky note on my computer to remind me to pursue great things!
