Overcoming Nervous Nelly - Exploring the Harmful Effects of Anxiety on Performance

Overcoming Nervous Nelly - Exploring the Harmful Effects of Anxiety on Performance | Is Your Web Developer a Cowboy? | Scoop.it

A colleague is out sick, and suddenly it's fallen on you to deliver a crucial client presentation. The saliva dries up in your mouth, your heart races. You briefly consider heading home sick yourself, before moving into the conference room to discover your boss has decided to sit in. If you were in danger of failing before, now your anxiety has made failure a foregone conclusion.

 

We've all experienced the crippling effects of job performance anxiety. But far from being uniquely relegated to nightmare scenarios like the one outlined above, anxiety is a pervasive aspect of office life, says Harvard Business School Assistant Professor Alison Wood Brooks.

Interesting to see the performance difference from a simple reframe. What we say to ourselves before we are about to present, or indeed perform in some other way, has a real impact on our results. Anxiety is normal (http://www.speakingandpresenting.com/public-speaking-anxiety.html) and so is self talk. Make sure you are repeatedly telling yourself how exciting the situation is and how much you are looking forward to it. Lose the typical doomsday inner voice.

Wow, this is something that many of us have experienced at some time or the others in our professional lives. In many cases it is about salvaging the situation and making the best out of it. Performance anxiety sure hit you hard! It drives away the ability to think rationally and in a cool manner. In many cases, the boss expects the goods to be delivered and he or she may not be bothered about what you are going through! I guess you can pray to God for some inspiration or just trust that you are going to do your best!

Yes, you are absolutely right! Even if you are perfectly healthy and fine, you may fell anxious at some point of time in a day. A little bit of anxiety helps us to face big challenges of our life. When your heart starts racing fast out of anxiety or nervousness, use this condition in a positive manner to energize yourself to perform better. The best way to control such situation is by taking a deep breath. Click the following link to learn some simple steps to cope with anxiety: http://bit.ly/1UIIWc9

6 Ways to Like Your Job More

Not thrilled about your job? Here some ways to re-invent it.

 

Most people don’t love their jobs.  In fact, many studies show that only about 1 in 5 people really enjoy their jobs, about 1 in 5 actively dislike their jobs, and the rest are fairly neutral on the topic.

 

Since most of us spend more time working than doing anything else except sleeping, this seems unfortunate. Unless you’re the kind of person who derives more satisfaction from complaining about something than you would from enjoying that thing (I know there are some people like that),  it seems as though it would be better to like work more.
