Nervousness is a very common emotion.

It is a common work emotion especially when you are just starting out. People are emotional. And modern society is competitive, fast-paced and efficient, which inevitably brings us a lot of tension and stress. Some people are very good at dealing with tension, while others are overwhelmed by their own tension ……

When you’re nervous, you’re often advised to “take it easy! ” and are often admonished like this, “Take it easy!” “It’s no big deal!” Unfortunately, however, this approach is hardly effective; it will constantly remind you of the presence of the emotion, and in fact, it reinforces the nervousness and will make you feel even more uneasy.

Master the Law of Two or Eight

If you are working hard, you can apply the “Law of Two or Eight”, which divides 80% of minor and 20% of major things, and prioritizes 20% of the work that plays a key role, because in most things, the most important and decisive actually only accounts for a small part of it. When the pressure is reduced, 80% of the work is gradually solved.
If the proposed plan does not correspond to reality, it will cause tension due to frustration. Psychologists suggest that when booking the work schedule, you can arrange a small period of “vacuum time”, that is, a complete “vacuum” without prearranging anything, adjusting the rhythm of life, there is work and leisure.

Writing a “record of success”

The difference between a “success” and a “setback” is not just about the big things, but also about accomplishing one or more things that are a testament to your abilities. “Success doesn’t have to be a big accomplishment. Success can be as simple as not being late for work, getting compliments on a date, coming up with a new idea for a meeting, creating a complete travel itinerary, discovering a popular restaurant, etc. It may seem like a small thing, but persistence over time can be a great sign.

And being new to the workplace, I don’t know how to get along.

I think that entering the workplace means entering a new learning environment, and the most important thing is to learn and grow, so we can do so:


  • More to do: do spend time in the business, others with 8 hours, you use 10 hours, 12 hours. As soon as possible to familiarize themselves with the workflow, the duties of the departments, business norms. Do not be afraid to do wrong, but do not do it blindly!
  • More questions: not clear do not understand, like colleagues to ask for advice. A matter of more than a few people, in order to get an accurate answer
  • More look: see how others are doing things, who did the best 9, where to do well. Better than their own where, learn him!
  • More exchanges: to actively participate in the activities of the department. So that you can enter the circle.
  • Go to work every day fully dressed
  • Don’t be reasonable, learn to be humble
  • Learn to listen to others, even if it is criticism. Many times criticism is also a kind of help (of course, does not mean that those malicious criticism). The key is to criticize the right must accept and improve. Not the right kind of laugh it off, do not have to be too serious, have to discuss a right or wrong.
  • Learn to help others first, without asking for return.

I also just entered the workplace, a lot of things do not know how to deal with, especially when faced with the emotions of work, every half a month will have an emotional breakdown. But I never want to give up, because giving up won’t solve any problem! Courage to face work emotions, let’s grow together!
