Ever feel like you just can’t with your job anymore? Is your once dream job now your worst nightmare? If you only have that feeling occasionally, you probably don’t need to worry, but if you’re feeling stressed and frustrated at work every single day, you might be experiencing career burnout.
A well-crafted to-do list acts as a guiding light for your day. It helps you overcome feelings of being overwhelmed, and reduces anxiety around whether you’re being productive throughout the day. To-do lists come in all shapes and sizes—it’s all about what works for you as an individual. The below method is one method that might work for you; it’s up to you to decide what to implement into your own planning system.
I absolutely believe in the power of hard work. Like Jimmy Spithill, skipper of Team Oracle USA, says, "Rarely have I seen a situation where doing less than the other guy is a good strategy."
That's basically my mantra: I may not be as talented, or educated, or experienced as other people... but I can always try to out-work them.
But we can all work smarter, too. That's the real key to success: working harder and smarter.
