To all the leaders out there: Stop doing all shit on your own! Delegate! Have fate in your colleagues!
And fuck all shitty deadlines if no lives are at stake.
Cz yours is for sure!

...or you'll end like me with a heart attack at the age of 43.

Now i'm here at a health-care-hotel (dunno what it's called in english) for 3 weeks relaxing and doing programming w/o being stressed at all. =)

    Holy fuck!!

    This is one of my worst fears after stroke.

    I am trying to live and cultivate a more stress free life to avoid any long term harm.

    This post is surely a good reminder and eye opener at the same time.

    I hope you are recovering well bro. Please take very good care of yourself.

    @F1973 Some corporations ask too much at times... but I find a STRONG unwillingness to say no / walk away in Developer land too.

    @N00bPancakes I agree. Employers ask too much.

    What I learned is, have your own goals and work towards them. Don't be afraid to say no.

    I know the above advise is easier said than done. But if we upgrade ourselves and build our skill set, then we can be in position to find a new gig and move out.

    Gute Besserung! (best wishes)

    That's why I don't take stress. If bad planning leads to deadline problems, I don't care. I do my job, but I don't tear myself apart.

    Btw., my guess is that you're in Damp right now. ^^

    We call it the Hospital. Or just Hospital if you're a British heathen. 😋

    @SortOfTested Actually, more like a rehab clinic. The hospital is where they treat the actual heart attack and e.g. do surgery, but you can't just go home like that afterwards.

    I'd call it a convalescent home.

    Hope they look after you well, and you recover completely.

    We just funnel all money to the hypno-choad and give them our children/future state children as payment. #Freedom #Liberty #We're#1#InFailingAthealthcareEducationHumanDecencyLogicReasonSanityEtcEtAl

    Seems like a rehab centre.
    Anyway, best wishes and I hope you recover soon!

    When they say that they need something fast, just ignore it. They always need something fast and its always you who needs to do it fast.

    Just set the normal time and deadline and add breathing room time like normal and say that that is the minimum and fastest time. Their mismanagement issues are not your problem.

    They will chop it up into phases or parts and they will look like they did a good job managing the fire and you will look like a hero who worked hard and fast yet all you did is your normal work without stress.
