Casto: It is a pleasure for me to be part of the Habit Magazine, “Less Stress, More Energy”… What first comes to my mind is: do sport, enjoy what you do (professional and personal-wise) and be positive! Having said this, I will be more practical:
After attending training, webinars and reading many books… Make your own conclusion and set up your own system. Personally, I set-up my own based on the best from Getting Things Done (by D. Allen) and Eat That Frog (by B. Tracy).
People tend to put more on their plates than they can eat. Don’t fool yourself. No matter if you are a 4, 8 or even more hour work person a day. In my case, I plan what I will do daily/weekly/monthly and I will focus on it. In addition, I estimate 20% buffer for those unexpected last minute issues.
At work, it is very common to repeat tasks/projects, but I find that boring! Consequently, when I have to repeat something, I first think how to improve it. Hence, this will be fun, you will love it and, subsequently, you will deliver better performance.
