ZONING IN VS. STRESSING OUT

Have you experienced "the transcription zone" described in last week's Advance Magazine article by Karen Callicutt? If not, it's something you have to look forward to. Similar to the euphoria experienced by runners when they have an established momentum that seems to carry them along, MTs sometimes feel this lift after an hour or two at their most productive time of day, if everything comes together just right. It brings us a feeling of well being on top of what we earn.

All of us are under stress, especially with the many changes we are experiencing (see http://www.montana.edu/wwwcc/life-change.html) and information overload (see http://pespmc1.vub.ac.be/CHINNEG.html). It can bring on feelings of helplessness, agression, and anxiety. In the midst of daily learning and production pressures, we may need to realize we are in over our heads, and find some lifeboats to carry us along, like expressing our frustrations to real friends, prioritizing, resting, cleaning, getting organized, simplifying, letting go, deleting, and reaffirming or refining our basic values and beliefs.

It is my hope that this newsletter is a bridge over some of the information flood for you, a guide to some links of interest to you, and a lift at the end of your week. And may you find the transcription zone many days! Happy Valentine's Day!
