Feeling overwhelmed today?
I’ll keep this short.
Here are four fast ways to put a stop to it before 5 pm Friday so you can enjoy your weekend.
- Shut down email. It’s killing your focus and adding to your To Do list by the minute. Check email around lunch and around 4 pm and then close it down. That goes for Facebook and Twitter too.
- Take a 20-minute emergency office cleaning break. Turn on some fun music and quickly sort the piles so you know what’s really work, and what’s not.
Trash one pile just because you’re the boss and you can.
- Translate the piles into a Prioritized To Do list. Get it all on one sheet of paper.
Don’t forget to add the mental list you’re carrying. Write it all down so you can forget about it.
- Act like it’s the day before vacation and you must get it done quickly.
Accept that good is good enough today. Close the door and knock it out.
Now, get what needs to be done done…and enjoy your weekend.
