In the PR world there is never enough time to do everything we wish or even need to do. Therefore, in this profession it’s ALL about TIME MANAGEMENT! Time is money and we shouldn’t be wasting it. Here are some solutions that you should make a habit of if you haven’t already:
Some tasks are more important than others. Some tasks can be placed on the back burner while others need to be placed on the top of the lists. Once you prioritize based on the importance of the task then you can tackle it.
We like lists and get satisfaction from crossing things off said lists. There are different ways of organizing to-do lists. Heck, you can make daily, weekly, and monthly lists. Then prioritize the lists. This way you are able to break down your task and cross, cross, cross away (for all the fantastic feels)!
EAT THE FROG!
Procrastination can get the best of people. If you haven’t heard of this term by now here it is: Mark Twain once said “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.” Eating the frog goes hand in hand with prioritizing (your list) and not procrastinating. Tackle your biggest challenge of the day first thing in the morning and the rest is small fries…
Everyone has a different definition of what organization means to them. For me it’s my minor OCD and having everything in its correct place and not having a mess. Others might like a beautiful mess, but they at least know where everything is. Find the organization that works for you, implement it and you should be golden.
Disclaimer: We can’t promise these solutions will make you feel less stressed or less overwhelmed but there are high chances of you getting those important things done quicker.
