Is your to do list growing each time you look away?
At this time of year we tend to feel it is too much and we are losing control.
Roll with the punches and relax here are some tips…
Enjoy what you do.
Even the most tedious tasks need to be completed. If you go in with the mindset of “this is boring” it will be. Put some enthusiasm into each component of the task and you will notice a different outcome containing a sense of pride and satisfaction at a job well done. If it is something that just does not appeal to you but must be done, find a way around it, whether it be exchanging with a colleague or getting external assistance. Then you can continue doing what keeps you happy.
You are valuable.
No-one likes to admit it, but each of us are replaceable. Whilst most of us go to work for our employer each day, for some of us, someone we don’t even see, it does not have to be all about keeping the boss happy. Think of it as a two way street. You keep boss happy, boss keeps you employed and will invest in you. Make sure you put the effort in and try to find solutions to each problem as it arises, ( or even preempt it ) or your future as it currently stands may be a little shaky. If you need assistance to acquire the skills to continue then find them. Most employers want you to be successful, because in turn that makes them successful too.
Stay out of the political battles.
So many of us have strong opinions on a few topics or about certain people. It is easy to get caught up in these discussions with your colleagues. Remember though that if you say it out loud you can not retract it. If you can find a better way to achieve something, bring it to the attention of the correct person. Don’t waste time pointing out others errors, provide a solution/option and let the results speak for themselves.
Delegate or outsource.
Where possible, to lighten your workload, delegate or outsource tasks. You do not need to personally attend to each individual action. By utilising the strengths and resources of others you will increase your productivity and achieve goals much faster and perhaps even at a reduced cost.
