For about a week now, I feel as though I’ve been struggling to stay afloat at work. I couldn’t quite understand why – the work load itself wasn’t overwhelming, and no one was pressuring me for deadlines or anything. But everyday I felt like it was go-go-go and getting no where.
Despite feeling like I had a ton to do, I took ten minutes out of my morning and wrote out what needed to be done. I went through my email and, instead of flagging the emails that needed action or follow-up, I wrote out what needed to be done in my spiral notebook. Once it was all written out, it didn’t seem like that much. And the rest of the day, I’ve been calm. Even better, I’ve managed to cross every single item on off that list. Done and done.
