You know the story when a work day has one task after another. Those days are good when they are productive, but unfortunately they usually are not. I want to take a moment and provide my personal method to gain productivity during the extraordinarily busy days, so that you too can remain productive.
1. Take a moment.
Continuing productivity is a mindset. When projects keep coming take a moment and a breath. Becoming stressed is the first way to become less productive. If you get “frazzled” you will be no good to anyone and your team will suffer the consequences.
Take time to prioritize the most important things first. You cannot be your local Superman or Wonderwoman if you do not figure out what are the most important items to take care of first. Take each item one-by-one.
Delegate what you can delegate. There are always things you can give to others to do. Trust your followers or co-workers are able to handle the tasks given. The golden rule is, “if someone can do a job 50% as good as you can; delegate!” Do not be fearful and let projects go. Next time you ask others to help, they will be much more prepared to assist and you will feel more confident delegating.
These are some quick pointers to help you do well when you are as busy as a bee.
