Feeling stressed? You're not alone. But check out the latest Net Future Institute survey (www.netfutureinstitute.com) of company executives to find out if your stress is their stress. "Deadlines" ranked as the No. 1 most stressful, closely followed by a couple of factors (budget constraints and financial stress or earnings) related to current economic conditions, according to respondents. "Job security" or "dwindling confidence in the survival of a division/company" bring up the rear, placing the least amount of stress on respondents. Some respondents said that a certain amount of stress is a good thing because it "keeps people alert and responsive."
