Part and parcel of life as a business owner or manager is learning to cope with stress, and those who struggle with this challenge, will find it very difficult to succeed in the business world.

Stress impacts on individuals in many different ways, some business owners seem to thrive on it, whilst others find the toll that stress takes on them to be debilitating to the extent that they become unproductive.

This excellent article, suggests that there is a way to be successful and productive even when under stress, and it discusses how to achieve this state.

One thing i found very significant about this article is the portion where they say divide tasks into to different sections the 50% you can control and the 50% you cannot. The 50% that you can control are things like your job performance, how you communicate with others and your productivity. The 50% you cannot control is other peoples reaction to what you say/do and things that are completely out of your control like accidents unexpected problems etc. I find this division of focus very helpful when managing stress. For instance at my work my job is to stock the shelves everytime a new load comes in, if i dont complete the load i get very stressed out, however sometimes it is not my fault and the load is to large. If i divide my focus and act passively to the fact that i will not complete the load and i communicate the problem to my manager i find there is alot less stress than if i were to try my best to finsih the load then not tell my manager and stress when i wait for his reaction.
