Overworked? Make a list!

If the day feels impossible and it’s hardly begun, take charge. Make a list!  Invest a few minutes to identify and write down those “countless” demands. Look hard at them. Strike out any that are not 100% necessary. Consider what you could pass on to other people. Think creatively about how you could do something differently or faster. Number them in order of importance. Check if they matter to other people and how. Be honest about what you are habitually postponing. Do that first. As things get finished, encourage yourself by striking them out. Reconsider your resources and priorities as the day progresses. Best of!
