Storyboard Text

  • How was work?
  • Fine.
  • This is Jim. He works an office job at a website design company called Net Design Group, where he assists with programming websites for clients.
  • Too much work to do, too little family time. It's all too much.
  • Jim often finds himself programming late into the evening due to his heavy workload. Although Jim usually enjoys his job, he finds his excessive work hours and workload to be quite stressful and draining.
  • I can't get this stupid program to work!
  • When Jim finally finishes  working for the day, he goes home. More often than not, his kids are already asleep and his wife is ready for bed. Jim knows he should spend more time with his family and that his wife is worried about his work habits, but he is unsure what to do about it.
  • No. I'll be fine.
  • Need any help with your code?
  • In bed, Jim has trouble sleeping. The stress induced by Jim's large workload, on top of worrying of how he is supposed to balance family time with work, sometimes keeps him awake late into the night.
  • The next morning, Jim heads back to work and tries to fix the program he was working on. However, stressed and tired from the previous night, Jim finds it hard to concentrate on his work and therefore becomes quickly frustrated.
  • Later in the day, on break, the effects of Jim's stress only become clearer. His stress has made him want to isolate himself from others, as well as push away help from others when it is clearly needed.
