Don’t you have enough to do without feeling guilty about all the things you don’t get done?
With all the things we have to do these days, it’s easy to get bogged down in busywork, constantly working, yet never quite getting ahead of the curve. Even when we’re productive, we tend to feel bad about the things we didn’t do.
Instead of focusing on getting more done, why not determine to do fewer tasks well? Try to remember that the quantity of your work isn’t nearly as important as the quality of it. And don’t accept impossible deadlines. When a task is put before you, make sure you build in extra time to get it done. Most importantly, learn when you need to say no to a new project or deadline. Never allow anyone to add undue stress to an already over-stressed schedule.
