This week’s Mic Drop Monday asks if you are busy or just overwhelmed and either way, how can you get the most of your time without descending into overwhelm.
Make A List And Check It Twice
Your second column should be the things you’d like to get done if all your list 1’s are done. These are things that are important but won’t stop your business from operating. List 3 is the things you’d like to get done but perhaps don’t matter too much. Or can be delegated.
Track Your Time
It will also help to use time tracking apps that you can set a timer on so you can give yourself blocks of 30 minutes to work on just one task and nothing else.
Make sure you aren’t being struck down with overwhelm and stay productive. Nobody ever achieved great things by not getting stuff done!
And when someone tells you they are busy, ask yourself if they really are or are they just overwhelmed and unproductive?
