It’s Like Open Mic Only Different
Here’s how it works.
It’s like any rambling conversation. Don’t try to read it all. Jump in whenever you get here. Just go to the end and start talking. EVERYONE is WELCOME.
The rules are simple — be nice.
There are always first timers and new things to talk about. It’s sort of half “Cheers” part “Friends” and part video game. You don’t know how much fun it is until you try it.
We’re Talking about Stress with Ari Garber, Special Guest
Stress. Gosh donÃ¢â¬â¢t I know it? IÃ¢â¬â¢ve got enough of it in my life. But then, you do too. Who doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t?
So, I asked a friend, Ari, who knows a bit about the stress experience Ã¢â¬â he was a full-time trader and now he works in a firm run by four partners (all Ph.D.s). He and I thought that itÃ¢â¬â¢s time we talked about stress. Maybe we have ideas on how to have less stress and more fun.
We might talk about
- What causes you stress?
- What specific little tricks and methodologies do you use to combat it?
- Do you focus on psychological, physiological, or holistic approaches to deal with it?
- Do you self medicate? Do you have prescribed medication? I didn’t want to be the alcoholic cliche of a trader, but the heroin was fun… (That was a joke people)
- Is stress just the luxury of those who have time to dwell on it?
And, whatever else comes up, including THE EVER POPULAR, Basil the code-writing donkey.
Oh, and bring a link, if you have one to share.
