In today’s fast-paced world, everyone seems to be getting busier. More people seem to be saying that they have ‘more things to do and not enough time’ or that they are running from one thing to the next and then onto the next thing. This constant juggle between work commitments, family responsibility and simply taking time for yourself (if you take any time at all!), results in many people feeling tired, stressed and some even on the verge of burnout.
In the next weeks we are going to offer you some tips to help manage all those things you have on your plate so you are able to focus on your priorities and feel less stressed and more energized. By taking some time to look at your ‘big picture’ of everything you have to do, and everything you want to do, you will be able to come up with new strategies and develop new habits that will help you. This in turn will increase your personal and professional performances.
We will go together through different subjects including: prioritizing and planning, how to delegate when you have too much to do, the importance of saying NO when you are overbooked and finally not to forget yourself and breath sometimes.
The objective of this blog is to help you to get done everything you have to get done and also to allow you to work and live peacefully without having thousands of thoughts that run into your head, to concentrate on the present rather than focus on the tasks you’ll have to get done in two hours, two days or two months, and to teach you never to forget the Greek quote : a healthy mind in a healthy body!
Point to Ponder: When you take a look at everything on your to do list, are you clear as to your priorities? Are there things that you can delegate to others? What is urgent versus what is important? If you could accomplish only one task today, what would it be?
