October 16, 2013 I don’t know about you, but when I’m starting to feel overwhelmed, it helps to sit down and make a list of all the things that need to get done. I try to keep a running list of tasks and follow-ups, but sometimes, like today at work, I just needed to stop and make a list of the tasks that had to get done today. Once I have the list on paper (and out of my head) the stress level goes down so that I can take a deep breath and begin to focus on the No. 1 task for the day. What works for you when you’re feeling overwhelmed? How do you get your day started? And how do you keep ‘on task’ throughout your work-day?
