Is it possible to eat an elephant? Of course! The key is to do it one bite at a time. The same thing happens with any problem or project that you face in your work. To address any important goal, I recommend using projects and the following recipe, very easy and concrete which will help you to simplify your work and achieve all your goals. 1) Understand the problem many times we dedicate ourselves to the task with great energy, but without having taken the time to analyze, understand and plan the steps that we must take. Do you already know the cost of work like this, really? Therefore, understanding the problem is equivalent to having 50% of the solution! This is my suggestion: If your problem/project is long or complicated, I suggest splitting it into goals. I.e.
those intermediate steps that you need to achieve on the way to the solution. Then, at the same time you can split each goal into a set of sub-tareas, which are the things that you must perform in its entirety, to give this goal by accomplished. If the problem/project is not as long or complicated, you can skip a step and simply split it into a set of tasks, once they are completed, you’ve achieved your goal. (2) Work on the tasks of a time. You have your task list, in addition to receiving phone calls, emails and a host of other issues to address.
How to deal with so much work? Most learn to do several things at the same time and jumped topic on topic until exhaustion. There are studies that have shown that the multi-tasking as it has been called, is inefficient because too much time is wasted when changing a task to another, causes increase in stress and reduces the quality of our results. The answer to this problem is the unitasking, i.e. attacking the tasks of a time, to the extent that is possible. Therefore, I suggest you reserve moments for phone, moments for the email, and moments to your to-do list and attacking a time, passing to the next task only when you have finished the previous. You’ll see that your days will be at the same time less stressful and more productive!
