This article is a summary of the tips and tricks that I gave my team to reduce stress and regain control, and avoid feeling overwhelmed.
“I am overwhelmed with stress!” – is what I have been hearing from my team a lot lately. And it makes sense, we are in the middle of the year, this year’s deliverables are due within the next few months, and on top of that, we started planning for next year. When they turned to me for advice, I shared all my knowledge, experience, and skills. They were pretty happy with the list of tips and best practices, so I decided to also share them with my audience here.
This article gives you tips and tricks to reduce the unnecessary stress in your work-life and gives you the tools to organize your life, get your career back in control, and be more successful at what you do.
Time management with pomodoro teaches you how to control time and tasks, reduce stress and make sure you have enough time left to do things you like.
Out of all the resources available to you, there is only one that is a really special type of resource – time. You cannot store time for later. Everyone has the exact number of it each day. Time wasted cannot be restored or retrieved back. Most people feel that they have too many tasks and too little time for them. The simple answer to all those problems is time management.
Time management is the discipline that teaches you how to stay in charge of time. It teaches how to plan time more wisely, so that you have more time to do more things. With time management you will learn how to set your priorities right and make conscious choices, so that you can spend more time doing the important tasks.
The last pillar that I am going to cover is the professional productivity. Just like the case with personal optimization, here the idea is to do the things you do right. This is achieved by usually doing them faster, better, with fewer resources or higher quality. One of the definitions of productivity is “the effectiveness of productive effort as measured in terms of the rate of output per unit of input”. Or in other terms how to achieve better results with the same amount of effort.
