You Can’t Do It All
When you have a lot on your plate, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Don’t get me wrong: many people in the IT profession get a rush of adrenaline. There is always something to do. In this fast-paced pandemic climate, it can be difficult to be the perfect I.T Professional. Many people expect IT professionals to know it all, be it all, and do it all at the same time.
Felix Fix It
Many people want you to be a hero. Maybe even “Felix Fix It.” But you can’t do everything.
Don’t get caught up in little computer difficulties that a colleague can handle on their own. Allow your coworkers to address their own problems by trusting and empowering them. Provide the tools that allow them to succeed on their own. Let your team know that you are there to support them, if they truly need you.
You may not have time for an all-inclusive vacation or all of life's comforts, but that doesn't mean you can't prioritize your health. Do not let stress take hold, remember you can't pour water from an empty cup. Keep connected and take care of yourself first my friend.
