FUD

Posted by Tom Locke on July 14th, 2016 filed in Business, History, Life

Back in March of 2014, I wrote a piece on “Fearing Life” and how we get hung up on “what ifs”, the fear of the unknown and what other people think of us.  What a waste of valuable time.

Yet it is a reality.  In fact IBM came up with an acronym about it – FUD, an illness relating to Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt.

If you have it, it will probably last for a while, but fight it any way you can. One route that worked for me was the confiding in someone I trusted in the workplace.  When I did, I soon found out that he had similar issues.  Just the feeling of not being only one suffering from despair reduced a lot of my anxiety.  It also aided that person I confided in.
