Here’s the one thing you should avoid!
We live in a very busy world. My calendar is always full and I’m sure you too have a laundry list of things that need to get done. We have gotten accustomed to always being busy and running around trying to get it all done.
I can’t stress how important it is to prioritize your day. If you don’t, you will get caught up in a crazy rat race. At the end of the day, you’ll have accomplished very little and feel even more stressed out than you did to begin with. So I urge you to create of list of what must get done by YOU and do the most difficult first.
I stress YOU, because there are lots of things you’re doing that could probably be delegated to someone else and that would not only shorten your to-do-list but also minimize your stress.
So what is really important and what can you delegate? Don’t be a control freak!
Here’s the one thing I avoid like the plague are meetings. They’re often a total waste of time. It’s a formality that is of little value. You have to drive to and from, sit and wait in a lobby, wait for other people that are running late and sit through the formalities of a meeting. YUCK! Not to mention the complainers and the wandering off topic. Many of the things discussed in a meeting can be done over a Skype call or email. I like bullet points. Keep it short and sweet and efficient.
Take back your calendar, your time and your life.
