Handling the work

Sabrina Clark, Managing Project Manager

“When on the job hunt in NYC, I was at the same time trying to sell my house in Atlanta, find an apartment in the city, and manage the uncertainties of my first trimester of pregnancy. I was close to my breaking point when my recruiter said to me: ‘Take a step back and think about what’s in and out of your control. Save your energy for what’s in your control, and for everything else, let go.’ By focusing my energies, I stopped feeling so overwhelmed by all of those things that I had zero power to control and found the calm I needed to handle everything else.”
