Coaching / Bien-être

This is our solutions to stay on top of things?

Have you ever felt that you can’t keep up with your tasks? Your to-do list is never ending and you have so little time and you just want to hang out with friends and you have to run some errands and someone has a scheduled a meeting with you… Many of you can relate to this (maybe). If that’s the case, here’s a quick read for you to get inspired and stay on top of things!

 First … Be disciplined:

The key to getting everything done is to be self-disciplined. If you have a task in mind focus solely on it. Don’t get lured by distractions. Social media on your phones and even your computers can keep you from being productive. If that’s the case for you, use app blockers. Set boundaries. Don’t plan to go out when you know you shouldn’t. Don’t leave things to the last minute. Cramming will only cause stress. Instead, get done with your tasks as soon as they are assigned. 

Second... Plan your day:

Whether you have a brand new Agenda or just a sheet of paper, just scribble down your tasks. When written, the task becomes clearer and thus easier to finish. At the start of the day take at least 15 minutes to reflect mentally on the things you need to do. It helps a lot to divide your tasks into urgent tasks and less important tasks. As a result, you could finish them in the most efficient way.

And… Take care of one thing at a time:

Instead of trying to do everything at the same time (and potentially lose your mind), deal with each task individually. As a result, not only will you be able to finish everything (well that depends on the workload) but the work will be of better quality.

When you get the hang of it… Create a system that works for you:

There are things to do other than studies and work. You might want to work out, read, or simply watch a movie. In light of these things, and depending on how important they are to you, create a schedule that you think will satisfy you. Try it out for a week. After experimenting with it, make adjustments as you find necessary. 

Eventually… Don’t deprive yourself of self-love:

It is easy to hate on ourselves when we don’t get work done and fail to finish tasks. Self-deprecation will just cause you more stress. Be compassionate to yourself instead. Understand that you gave it your best and that, as a human being, you are bound to make mistakes.
