Like everyone these days, I get overwhelmed by the tasks I have to accomplish in a day, a week, a month. I am always on the lookout for systems, methods, tricks, approaches that will help me sort it out, get it done and hopefully not require sedation.
- Figure out the amount of time you have (or want to allot) to the things you must get done.
- Insert your tasks to fit into that block of time, eliminating time wasters from your schedule.
- Say no to things that will throw this out of whack, even if it means pissing people off.
Number 3 is the hard part. Especially when your schedule consists almost entirely of out-of-left-field requests and falling-from-the-sky demands.
I’m going to give it a go and see what happens. Sorry if I have to piss anyone off.
