CEBU CITY, Philippines— Nothing is more stressful than not being able to do your job right and efficiently.
Work piles up like crazy in a blink of an eye, and we just don’t know how to swerve our way through it.
But it is never too late to start learning how to handle our job and the workload, right?
Set timelines— know which ones go first and which ones can be done later. Work on the priorities and focus your attention on them before you handle another one. Learn to know how to deal with things one at a time.
Pacing yourself— if you know this task can be done in less than an hour, then do it in less than an hour as efficiently as possible. Know to pace yourself and course your way through it.
Plan ahead— if you know you have a full day ahead or even a full week ahead, plan the things you should be focusing on and be dealing with. Stop putting too much on your plate and not being able to chew them properly.
Know your limits— if that task or tasks is so much for you to handle, be honest about it and refuse to do it, and look for someone who can. It is better, to be honest than to lock yourself up with something you have no idea about.
Co-exist with colleagues— this does not entirely mean you let them do things you don’t want to or can’t do, but simply means you need to know how to push each other’s buttons in learning how one can help each other rather than pushing the buttons that annoys everyone because work was not done properly.
These are just some of the common things we should keep in mind if we want to learn how to deal with work and making our work life simple.
A hard worker is okay, but a wise worker is more efficient both in work and personal life.
One honorable mention in keeping work like simple, learn to communicate. /dbs
