stress


In other words, both groups were stressed, but one group channeled the stress as a performance challenge; the other group as a performance threat. It wasn't the stress of a difficult test that caused distress--everyone felt that. It was how subjects interpreted their stress. - http://traderfeed.blogspot.com.au[..]mbracing-stress-minimizing-distress.html

The emergency team, in our understanding, was supposed to work as a point of entry for new developers, so they could know the codebase better. However, we didn’t get into account that newcomers needed to check on some things with the “old” developers. That hindered the work, and we eventually switched back to ~1 month rotation principle. - http://www.targetprocess.com[..]/how-we-handle-bug-fixes-and-rework.html

1、老婆對老公說:“我真不明白,追求我的所有人裡,哪個都比你有錢,可是我為什麼偏偏鬼迷心竅喜歡你呢?”
老公說:“那是因為窮人比富人更會關心女人,至少更關心女人的身材,跟著我,你永遠都用不著為腰圍發愁。”

2、“要是哪一天我萬一發胖了呢?”
“那我就當是進入了時間隧道,回到了以胖為美的唐朝啦。”

3、“你比我大九歲,年齡相差也太懸殊了。”
“那更好,我要是不比你老,還沒有人給你提供嘲笑資源呢。”

4、“你的長相也太慘了點兒。”
“那正是我比帥哥更優越的地方,帥哥只會用時髦的衣服和靚麗的膚色跟你爭奪美名,而我卻永遠一身布衣,甘做你的陪襯,讓人家看到,還以為我是你的司機呢。”


5、有人問老公:“結婚前後,女人什麼地方發生變化最大?”
老公說:“視力。婚前女人把男人看成開心果,可是婚後卻總是這不滿那不滿的,覺得婚前的日子像無花果一樣白過了,豈不知道,無花果比開心果更甜。”

6、朋友跟老公喝酒。“男人是車。”朋友發感慨道。
老公接口道:“女人是加油站。”
朋友說:“不過女人一結婚,就變成男人的收費站了。”
老公打斷他:“她沒變成洗車站用高壓水槍迎頭給男人澆冷水,就算男人的造化了。”

7、老公跟老婆說:“以前我覺得自己是大力水手,而愛情是菠菜,一吃菠菜就力大無窮。現在我才發現,當初看走了眼,愛情只是棵空心菜而已。”
“然而空心菜看著跟菠菜差不多,味道一點也不比菠菜差。”老婆說。

8、“跟你一起生活,比開三個公司還累。”老公抱怨道。
“哪三個公司?”老婆問。
“以前是鮮花公司,後來是送餐公司,最後都成道歉公司了。”

9、老婆經常懷念他們相識的那段時光,於是問老公:“你怎麼看我們的相識?”
老公說:“認識你就像誤入了一家正在促銷的商場,明知‘買一送一’是虛假廣告,卻經不住誘惑。”

*最棒的需求,往往是在我們身邊發現的
*TA 就在身邊的好處,是可以快速 Iterate,更快找到PMF
*需要教育市場的新產品,要善用YouTube 的力量
*最初的合作通路,要選針對早期熱衷者的那種
*打開通路的關鍵是贏得店主人的推薦
*與其佔很多店的一小部分營收,不如佔很少店的一大部分營收
*就算產品再好,進入市場後,也要一段時間的醞釀
*向下相容很重要 (美國小孩間本就有編織友誼手鍊互送的習俗)
*正向力量很重要 (與其打電動,父母更希望孩子動手)
*一旦打開,小孩市場的傳染力非常強有了初期成功後,還要不斷演進,才能維持顧客的興奮與市場的領先

有趣的是,教授說切忌養大自尊心。她發現,美國加州很多關懷青少年的機構都提倡建立自尊心(Self-Esteem),卻無助吸煙、毒品等問題。因為自尊心由「成功」養大,遇到「失敗」馬上危危乎。它的本質已有比較,要成為自尊心強的人,你就要覺得自己很特別,也比他人強。
要做到「自我關懷」,我們要接受自己會做錯,偶爾偷懶讓自己休息一下,就像對待你身邊的好友。
