Geek stress management

I had coffee today with DD Gangully, CEO of Dimdim, which makes an open source Web conferencing tool of the same name (and it has nothing to do with his own name, but was picked at random. When I noted the similarity, he sighed and said “I’m thinking of changing my name”). He told me his biggest issue as an entrepreneur is taking home his stress, which had been such a problem for him in his first startup that he avoided starting a second company for years.

But he has addressed this issue with the stress management spreadsheet shown here on his blog.

DD told me that tracking his stress levels at home have worked very well. I guess if you’re disciplined enough to keep a spreadsheet, you probably can be disciplined enough to do what you must to reduce your stress.
