Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “There’s something deeply soothing about watching the shelves fill up one by one, like a train of dominoes falling down in reverse. We can only imagine the filing, the record keeping, the alphabetizing—oh god, the alphabetizing—that must have gone into the project.” – Relax to a time lapse of the New York Public Library restocking 52,000 books
  • “When individual contributors are tapped to manage large-scale projects, oversee direct reports, or participate in strategic planning, they need to develop new skill sets on the fly — skills such as interpersonal dexterity, emotional agility, and communication savvy. As important as these leadership skills are, just as important to the leadership transition is learning to let go of old ways of thinking, and relaxing into the role.” – To Succeed as a First-Time Leader, Relax
  • “Instead of ordering someone to relax, career coach Nancy Ancowitz said to start off by showing empathy and acknowledging the employee’s stress. Something as simple a phrase as, ‘looks like you’re having a bad day’, to get started would already help calm the other person, she said, then follow it up by asking them open-ended questions that would give them a chance to talk about the problem.” – Stop telling stressed employees ‘to relax’, say experts
  • “Your pictures showing what rest means to you.” – Your pictures of rest
  • “This breathtaking melody is beloved enough when it’s sang by Judy Garland – but this new take on the old classic is enough to give you goosebumps.” – This Version of ‘Over The Rainbow’ Played on a Theremin Will Soothe Your Soul
