We're going to do something a little different this episode and take a slight departure from the usual topics of cyber security, vulnerabilities and hacks and take a look at career and personal development.
In the last episode, #7, with Jack Daniel and in episode #1 with Bill Brenner we briefly covered the subjects of work stress, burn-out and depression. This is a subject that is near and dear to me because I have, at various points in my career, suffered from all three. Those of us in Information Technology and Information Security know these conditions all too well: we work in high pressure, high stress jobs in which the stakes are very, very high. Most companies now depend on IT systems for their very survival and those of us that maintain and secure those systems feel the daily stress.
Joining me for Episode #8 of the Standard Deviant Security Podcast is a good friend of mine, Jeena Cho. Jeena isn't in security - she's an attorney so she knows a thing or two about managing the stress of a demanding career. We discuss work stress, coping with depression, silencing the inner critic, imposter syndrome and dealing with trolls. We also discuss something that myself, Jeena, Marc Benioff, Howard Stern, Ray Dalio and Russell Simmons all have in common - we meditate. It's how we unlock high performance, greater focus and keep depression in check.
Jeena Cho is co-founder of JC Law Group PC, a bankruptcy law firm in San Francisco, CA. She is also the author of the upcoming American Bar Association book, "The Anxious Lawyer: An 8-Week Guide to a Happier, Saner Law Practice Using Meditation." She offers training programs on using mindfulness and meditation to reduce stress while increasing focus and productivity. She's the co-host of the Resilient Lawyer podcast.
