You know how life is, sometimes things are really busy and you have to take a few minutes out of your day to focus on organising. Well I reached this point yesterday morning, I had a lot on my to do list. That had a potential to make me feel overwhelmed.
I applied tools I already have at my disposal. I took a few minutes out and started organising my to do list. I got myself quickly back on track by looking at timescales and priorities. You know sometimes, you just have to tell yourself… that can wait. Even in a busy work environment, there are things that can wait. Even if the person who gave you the task may think it is the most important thing.
I am trusted (and thus very well supported too) to manage my workload. By taking a little time out to plan, I got myself sorted.
One of the things I decided to delay, was the Wednesday midweek update. I scheduled it for today. And now you are reading it 😊
A few minutes of my time planning and organising, I was back on track and I never reached the overwhelmed feeling.
If things are mounting up, take a time out. It may feel like a strange thing to do when you are so busy but spending some time just with your to do list can really help bring focus.
