That's an interesting but very biased theory. Workplace stress often is environmental. As a previous journalist who worked on deadlines and once did not come up with any story , I can testify to that. The situation in which I didn't come up with a story was a job for a Japanese airline magazine. It was a very short notice assignment that involved me being sent to Korea for a very short time, with no expenses paid other than my airfare. The situation went badly, and I didn't come up with a workable story. My editor ripped a strip off me going down way and a second strip going up the other. I was sat down at his computer at midnight, with a morning deadline.Here's also an interesting article I came across today. It's about stress in the workplace but it has implications for our personal lives, too.
Let me short form it. The argument is that you can't eliminate stress in the workplace because stress isn't environmental. It's the manifestation of your own fears. CEOs don't talk about stress and anxiety. They discuss their own fears and how they have to manage them. It's a personal thing, which companies or others can't solve.
And, I came up with a story. Not a great one. But newspapers and magazines with empty pages are a rarity.
