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!

Danielius, what are three main things to keep in mind when you try to cook the best burger?
Asked by Ronaldas Buožis
Practice, practice, practice.
Practice aside I'd recommend to focus on three things:
1) Meat composition
Try grinding your own meat using different cuts of beef: shortrib, ribeye, chuck, brisket, etc. Cook the patties alone, taste the individually and try to find your sweet spot. Try different meats - mix ground and chopped salmon, turkey, pork (pork is the most underrated meat IMO), you get the idea. But the key point here is to taste the patties on their own to get the idea of their individual taste.
2) Meat cooking
Buy an immersion circulator and it will save you tons of time. However, if, for some unimaginable reason, you want to skip this step... Try cooking the patties without oil, with a splash of oil. Heck, try deep frying them. When I don't have my circulator, I cook the burgers on high, flipping every 15-20sec (this makes them cook more evenly). Again, cook the patties on their own to get the idea how they turn out. The point of this is to get the idea how your stove and cooking method relates to the final texture of the meat.
Try all the cheeses. Processed ones, hard ones, goat, sheep, mild, sharp, blue, green. Try making your own blend of cheeses (my personal favourite is provolone + gruyere, but it will be a different one for you, I promise). Also, if you really want to up your cheese game, learn to make your own processed cheese. No thank you needed.
When you have mastered all three of them (or get bored with experiments):
Try differen buns - potato rolls, pretzel buns, brioche (overrated), make your own buns!
Different sauces (for example: wasabi kewpie mayo for salmon burgers)
And only then I'd suggest you start adding condiments to your burger (be careful not to overstack your burger). Try wakame sallad (and all the others), chutneys, guac, caramelised onions, black garlic, literally anything you can think of - try it.
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."
