Handling stress in a time of deadlines
We'd taken all the precautions of ramping up staff for the tax season crush. Still, we are working long hours to met the reporting deadline obligations for our clients.
I don't think you ever get really used to it (the stress). I think you learn to adapt to it. Those who cannot adapt won't last long. It's a delicate balance of hours and energy. Over the years I've had to learn to take better care of my body when tax season comes around. If I don't, the hours spent working will return less and less production.
Look to what you do to see how well you react to long stretches of stress and deadlines. Are you as productive as you can be?
