My type of job deals with a lot of unexpectancy and being fast paced. With that I have a lot of deadlines, projects, and managers constantly following up on the status of my work. On the same note, I have so many ideas that I want to do and hundreds of AFI’s (Air Force Instructions) and guidelines shooting down every idea i want to do. My stress is Performance Pressure & of course the obvious in every workplace People Issue’s. Although many people think stress can be negative, to me it the opposite. I actually work better under stress. Mind you my mind will be going at a pace of 90 MPH, I’ll be sending emails three times faster than normal, and writing like a mad scientist, but in the end I get things done! And with the policy boundries, I simply just write and create new local policies… Ah the perks of writing and being in Public Affairs.
