The Dark Horse Project is a long-term study of how women and men achieve success by harnessing their individuality. Most traditional research on success asks the question, “What is the best way to achieve success?” We are instead asking, “What is the best way for you to achieve success?”
"They found that people found happiness through the relentless pursuit of fulfillment. The act of seeking fulfillment brought them success and happiness, instead of fulfillment as a consequence of obtaining mastery in a chosen field.
Their work looked at people who are masters of their craft, but totally unhappy at work, because they’re unfulfilled. The dark horses are individual. They each found pride and happiness in different aspects of their work. There is no formula. Just a basic compass heading."
Stress is simply inevitable in the lives of CxOs, entrepreneurs, and people who want to achieve a lot in any activity. Here I'm speaking from my personal experience first and foremost.
Managed stress allows you to achieve high productivity, but if unmanaged - it leads to burnout and a whole bunch of other problems. Again, personal experience.
Since I am constantly striving for the highest possible productivity, and would not want to burn-out again, I pay a lot of attention to the topic of stress management. At the same time, I think this is very relevant for many others as well.
Dealing with stress is hard. Cannot deny that.
On the other hand, the main principles are fairly simple - sports, sleep, nutrition, and recreation.
Anyone can (and should) become better at dealing with stress. I can't help but emphasize the analogy with sports that I like so much:
In sports, the main progress does not occur during hard workouts, but rather because of proper recovery. Well - rest, sleep, nutrition. Then proper recovery can lead to even better results. And so the cycle repeats.
Isn’t it the same with stress? I would say YES!
my Qoorio success story: group experience
While Qoorio is currently associated for knowledge sharing between two people, I found a case where I wanted to hack the system a bit and experiment how would knowledge sharing work with multiple people.
You see, while building our product once in a while we like to get out of our own juices and invite complete stranger to get some answers about user journey of buying new home. In this case the stranger was Danielius, charming and detail oriented Qoorio engineer. I just had to meet him because we share the same surname, we both code and wear glassses, and we have 100 Facebook friends in common, so I thought that we must be cousins or smth.
I also figured - he could also spice it up (no pun intented) our meeting by showing how to cook best burgers at home. So I reached out and asked if he could come over. He agreed and I went some grocery shopping to beef it up.
The results? First, the value of sharing knowledge was much higher, because he shared his authentic thoughts about questions we cared, and we could ALL interact and ask questions. That may also a be a problem - getting in front of group strangers might be humiliating, especially if you intravert. But I think Danielius held it well, right? :)
What went well? I think it was good decision to set up event in home environment, rather than in office, because it was more informal and allowed us more ways to engage and interact - in our case cook. Meeting new perspectives, learning new sills is something fun in general, and I believe the entire group enjoyed the experience and got inspired - wether its about burgers, or about real estate.
What I would do differently next time? First, I would add more structure. The more people, the more buzz and chaos, which you need to account for and add extra time. Second, I would also set up more context what is expected from us a group, and our guest upfront to reduce potential stress. We also had this fuzzy moment where it was not clear whether our official time was over or we should just continue hanging out.
And that was my group experience at Qoorio. What was your corkiest and the mos unique experience from Qoorio meetings?
