How are you dealing with handling too much stuff?
Hey everyone, What are your "secrets" to handling your tasks when you have a lot on your plate? I guess everyone has been in a situation where it's all pretty chaotic and you need to get it in order - so any suggestions, ideas, tools are more than welcome :)
I take my red pencil out and strike out the things that are not important at the moment
@serdarplg it reminds me of a friend who was highlighting the important stuff with a marker when studying - in the end everything was highlighted though :D
I’m not really 😂😂
Any specific tools won't help you. Instead try to remove any distractions disabling you from getting into the Deep Work. Do one thing at a time, then checking everything from that list feels like a sprint, a game, constant dopamine shocks from things you care about instead of random red circles and sounds 😂 Deep work takes time. Find a 6-hour part of your day when you are inaccessible. ➜ No meetings ➜ No notifications ➜ No nothing not related to your deep work focus
When I have a lot to do, I start with my favorite coffee by my side. I use 4D's of Time management to divide all my tasks. Then it becomes easier for me to do the most important tasks first.
I prioritize the "big stuff" and tackle the overwhelming tasks first.
I just run into my tasks, keep a cup of coffee with me, and don't leave my seat until I am finished (or if I am in need of another cup of coffee).
