No matter the position you have at work you will always need to get more done. One of the first things that needs to be done is you need to determine your outcome. What is it that you want?
Tasks that seem overwhelming can easily become manageable if you break them up into smaller, more manageable items. After you have listed the individual tasks you need to review them to select the priority of work. The next thing you need to do is determine if you or someone else should do the work. Don’t be afraid to delegate or ask for assistance. You may even consider doing the tasks you enjoy the most while delegating the rest.
Whether you or someone else needs to complete the task, a time limit or deadline should be set for each. This will ensure all of the work is finished when it needs to be done. It is also important that time frames are given to those you delegate to so they know your expectations. If the task will stretch over many days or weeks, entering it in your planner will ensure you keep track of it.
While these are basic steps that most of us know we often forget to follow them when we get busy and stressed. Often the simple process turns out to be the easiest to implement.
