Having a lot of your plate at work can be challenging. Challenging busy is good, stressful busy is not good.
When someone tells me they're really busy, I sometimes quip, "It's called job security". Which is unfair and probably untrue so I should probably stop doing that.
Just like everyone else there are days when I feel the pressure.
I have a tried and tested tactic to deal with the pressure. I simply ask to myself one question...
If you did just 3 things today, what would they be?
It's an excellent way to cut to the heart of what matters most.
Today I have my three. I've done one. So far so good. Two more to do this afternoon.
I'd better get cracking.
