Todays' daily sprout  transcript:

It's not about the stress.

One of the reasons that I'm so interested in stress or how we cope under pressure is not because of stress itself, although it fascinates me. It's because it gets in the way. It gets in the way of how we want to live, who we want to be, how we want to perform, how we want to interact with others and what we want to achieve. Let's be right, any of us who have set ourselves a goal that we haven't achieved, it's often not because of a lack of motivation or a lack of desire, it's because we've allowed the stressful things, the challenges and minor demands, and major demands, just get in the way. So the reason I'm interested in stress is simply that, it gets in the way.
