Do you ever feel like there aren’t enough hours in a day?
Do you ever feel like no matter how hard you work, your to-do list never seems to get finished?
You are not in that boat alone.
Here’s what to do.
Change The Stories You Tell Yourself
The next time you catch yourself, thinking “I have so much to do…”
Hit the pause button, and change the story you tell yourself.
Instead, try something more like this…
“I have a lot to get done today. I have had busy days in the past, and I will have more busy days in the future. I know I have what it takes, and I will succeed.”
We all have 168 hours a week to sleep, work, spend time with family and relax.
If you feel like your lists never get complete, you may be taking on too much.
You have to recognize what tasks can be delegated and which tasks need not be done at all.
Write It Out
You know that feeling when you have a task hanging over your head?
Yes, that is not a fun feeling. It makes it much harder to actually get things done because we’re so worried about what we may or may not forget.
No need to worry – there is an easy fix.
Whenever you’re feeling anxious by all your to-dos, pull out a piece of paper and jot down everything you’d like to get done that day.
There does not need to be any real order or structure. Your thoughts don’t even have to be written in full sentences.
You are basically just getting all of your thoughts out of your head, and onto paper.
Once you’ve finished your rough notes, you can re-arrange them in order of priority.
