As we head into the new year, new responsibilities and new plans are on tap for a lot of people’s careers. Before you tackle anything new, product manager Ankur Shukla reminds us that sometimes stress level is the most important thing to consider.

Shukla lays it out like so:
The amount of stress you take to increment a digit in your paycheck can be an exponential function of the stress of that digit’s distance from the units place. And when you are not working, you are stressing about the correct investment to make on that extra earned cash. All I say is that if you are still in your primes, just compare your paycheck from what you had 10 years ago and see the difference.You have earned a lot! And you are still in your primes. Think about it! Maybe a little less stress is a better deal than a little more money.
It’s a little thing, but well worth considering as you move into the new year.
