Spread Too Thin

Spread Too Thin

It’s easy to feel overworked when you’re spread too thin. People who try to juggle it all are still under the expectation that they can get everything done. Outside of work, there are many addition, important commitments: people to meet, taking care of the kids, housekeeping, organizations to participate in, family obligations and so much more. A lack of balance is a sure way to feeling troubled in the work place. 

Like we said, balance is key to making everything work. There are a few ways to consider this. You can start by trying to consolidate your responsibilities at work, or make sure to take on only what you can deliver in a given time frame. It could mean taking a few weekends of getting work done followed by a few weekends completely dedicated to personal commitments.

It also means saying “no”. Within reason, of course. If you are already tackling a few big projects at work that require painstaking detail, don’t feel pressure to work on something new, even if it’s your boss that asks you. Again, within in reason, politely say no and calmly explain your reasons why. Saying “no” at the right time is what paves the way for the most successful people out there. No one person can do everything, but one person can do a few things extremely well.
