Work Pressure And Stress

After decades, a school mate of mine called me me yesterday. It was a pleasant surprise for me. I only knew from the friend circle that he is a top executive in a MNC based out of UK.
When he learnt that I have superannuated, he wanted me to come on a video call. After seeing me, he exclaimed “Hey!! You!!! but for your shining top, you remain the same old buddy ya!!! You worked for Government Department, right? You were supported by more than required workforce is it not? , NO PRESSURE of work anytime; except for pleasing the bosses with some GOODness in time, work ah!”
I wondered!! Oh! Really? Is it so?

I replied, “Look at me! At sixty, how do I look now? Haven’t I been difficult to Makeout ?? !!
The work pressure has had it’s effect for sure! “
Our conversation went on for almost thirty minutes or more.

But, the statement that Government Employees don’t experience work pressure was unpalatable.

I went on recollecting my interactions with people both in official and personal life trying to make out how any times we did talk of this word PRESSURE.

I could easily correlate to my younger days, when mother took objections to my exuberant interest in the game of cricket, and when all her soothing advise failed to draw me home in time, she used to tell, okay, evening I will tell your father about your addiction to the game, you are overlooking all important things including your studies. That game is not your bread winner. I then used to tell her “Don’t put pressure on me”.

For I knew the end effect of my dad being apprised of my time schedule. Usually dinner time used to the ideal time to discuss family issues, as we used to have family eat together those days, unlike the different time zones observed now though all live under one roof only. The pressure then was the ultimate effect of not adhering to advise.

Pressure is defined as “the force produced by pressing against something”, it’s more of a scientific definition.

In real life, as noted earlier, Pressure becomes contextual.

For a home maker the pressure is to keep things ready within the time frame, For a student performance in an exam, for a job seeker to face the interview board, for a worker it’s not just about mastering his area of work – it’s much beyond-infact the working arena teaches you how difficult the world is. It’s not just sufficient that you do ur job efficiently it’s much much beyond that, understanding the coworker, leading a team of disconnected minds, standing up to the expectation superiors and more importantly not to be reduced to a nullity by the hot frog syndrome colleagues who always pulls one back if they feel one’s good prompt actions may force them also to perform and the fear of earning wrath from superiors. Thus, in a work place Pressure just doesn’t mean meeting the deadlines, It’s about drawing and redefining your boundaries within the environment as frequently as possible and strive not to overstep one’s own Lakshmanarekha

I learnt about this from a Physician, a few years back. During an annual health checkup , the physician perusing my lab test reports, was checking with me. Whether I experienced certain symptoms. He went on mentioning few of them from his list. It was NO NO from me. Finally, he said “You need to avoid getting stressed out.” He noted that my BP was slightly higher than normal. He went on , “No medication needed if u don’t have the symptoms but u need to avoid Stress”.
A physician understanding my professional background summed up what’s work Stress.
He said, in a lighter vein-
“You are an Auditor who keep a tab on expenditure of others and naturally when u see certain accounts there will be considerable internal impact on you which causes stress.”

So, for the first time I learnt that a work pressure is different from work related stress though we commonly use the same word.

Well, i thought my physician was right. During execution of any assignment, When the Executor observes certain reportable instances, naturally he/she enters into a dilemma on whether to report the issue straightaway, discuss with superiors, what shall be the impact on u, will u be blamed for such an analysis, how the earlier team had seen this issue if it’s a continuing event, what the earlier team may think of me, social and possible political (here I mean the usual petty office politics of splinter groups) etc.

When the span of control is large as in a Government set up, the pressure is felt at each stage by each group.

These days, masked ones threaten to invoke the RTI Act provisions, resort to frequent anonymous complaints, indulge in indirect harassment Techniques of spreading wrong messages, shouting loudly over phone before third party, well planned character assassination campaign to defame their own people. These people take care that their harassing attitude doesn’t reach the superiors by creating firewalls with in the organisation. Hence, work related Stress in Government offices is much more.
Our policy makers have devised the best possible rules and regulation frame work to address all such issues, but, as the saying goes EVERY RULE has an exception.

Each one of us should understand our roles and responsibilities; Both in working and family arena, identify the sources of stress and take remedial action rather than brooding. As long as there’s support for the weak wicked masked people out to create trouble within the organisation, any stern effort from policy makers too will not have a desired impact.
Stress is identified with guidelines, regulations and Expectations and converted to PRESSURE.
So, it’s within us not to fall a prey to the STRESS which is our Negative Reaction For Pressure respond positively to Pressure and be stress free.

  1. Protecting E-Commerce Sites From a Hacker
    To make the surface of a document look more professional, many companies use pastes.
    Although pastes may not have the same visual effect as handmade designs or embossing,
    they are still widely used and can create an impressive effect in many
    cases. The best way to achieve the professional look is to use a paste that contains a high amount of glue.

    P Paste A popular type of paste for presentations
    and other tasks is hibp pastes. Hibp pastes are
    thick, white ointment-like pastes that contain a high percentage
    of glue. They vary greatly in consistency, being either
    heavier or lighter than ointment-based pastes, and as such are stiffer and thicker.
    In addition to being stiffer, hibp pastes tend to be more dense,
    which gives them a better ability to hide defects and stay
    put longer.

    Personal information may be transmitted via hibp pastes.
    Because of the heavy nature of the paste, many businesses choose to only provide information on their company
    website or to partners through these pastes. This allows those who need the personal information to access
    it without compromising the company’s website, allowing them to still sell products or communicate
    with past and current customers. The information that can be transmitted through hibp
    pastes includes full names, email addresses, contact information, address history, and recent additions to the company’s database.
    As a result, many of the most popular and reliable pasting services do
    not advertise their ability to transmit personal information; this makes it
    much more difficult for a hacker to obtain a client’s personal information through
    a paste site.

  2. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone else
    experiencing problems with your blog. It appears as
    if some of the written text on your posts are running off the
    screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if
    this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Appreciate it

  3. Appreciating the persistence you put into your blog and detailed information you
    provide. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material.

    Great read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google
    account.

  4. Using Public Pastes to Promote Your Blog
    A great way to get traffic to your web site is by using pastes.
    By having regular posts on your blog or forum, people are able to see your updates in a quick and easy manner.
    As you may have noticed, there are many times
    where someone adds you on Facebook and other social networking sites without
    even realizing it. If this happens to you, do not let it
    go unchecked. Send them to your pastes and share
    your short links with others using social pasting software.

    Social bookmarking tools enable users to search for and instantly open up links to any web page.

    So if a user searches for “basketball hoop” in Google and
    he or she types in the search box “basketball hoop”, then your post on your blog or webpage will appear in front of them and be ready for reading or printing.
    The great thing about this system is that it can be incorporated
    into your personal web pages so that you are able
    to put a custom and unique url for each post which makes it easier for readers
    to find what they are looking for.

    Public pastes allow users to search for something specific or
    just browse through a large list of pastes. When using public
    pastes, it is important that you provide the description of what the post is
    about as well as a title. The title of your post will be
    what appears under the public post while the domain names
    should be provided to make it easy for people to
    insert them into their search engines. To save time with domain searches,
    it’s recommended that you submit your domain name and paste the paste code on your
    public post which will ensure that your domain name will appear along with the post title and description.

  5. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s
    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability
    and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job
    with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari.

    Superb Blog!

  6. We’re a gaggle of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community.

    Your site offered us with helpful information to work on. You’ve performed an impressive job and
    our entire neighborhood might be grateful to you.

  7. I’m so happy to read this. This is the kind of manual
    that needs to be given and not the random misinformation that is at the
    other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this best doc.

  8. How Dump Monitor Helps You Protect Yourself From Spam
    A Paste is data that’s been pasted on to a website designed in order to
    share content like pastes. These public pastes are often used by hackers
    to their power to secretly, easily and quickly share sensitive and important information like password files and
    financial numbers stolen during cyber-crimes. These public pastes also give online users the ability of commenting or posting a message to another online user by using this form of
    “paste”. By using this easy process, hackers can steal this person’s private
    information and post it on a website without them knowing about it.

    For anyone who has ever gone through spam emails or
    other unsolicited email found on the Internet, you know how
    annoying these pastes can be. You might also have experienced a
    time when an email was sent to you that seemed to be from someone you knew, but there was no way for
    you to verify the sender’s identity or location. This can occur when hackers use
    this paste to breach databases of large companies and reveal the
    personal data of these people. It can also happen to you when hackers use
    pastes to breach databases and reveal your personal details
    to spammers or other internet predators.

    To protect yourself from any of these breaches, it’s
    best to opt for a free service that gives you the
    option to either delete and paste securely from one’s own computer.
    Dump Monitor is a web based service that allows you to view
    a public pastebin log to see the pastes that other people have pasted from
    your account. It will also allow you to log into your account
    and remove any of the pastes that you don’t want other people to see.
    Dump Monitor also allows you to determine the number of pastes that have been erased since your last
    login and the reason why.

  9. I have been browsing nline greater than tree hours today, but I never discovered
    aany attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful valkue sufficient for me.

  10. We would like to thank you just as before for the wonderful ideas you offered Janet when preparing a post-graduate research
