When deadlines loom and mountain of work seems to be getting higher, when you have to clear the work before and after leave. Perhaps it is never about the work volume per se, the stress comes from a feeling of losing control.
When is the happiest time? It is when one has autonomy in life – a feeling that you have options and time to exercise these options.
How does one get autonomy?
– Manage time more effectively
– Learn skills that will help to work smarter
– Constantly protect space for myself to the point of being a little selfish and not giving all your time away
Hope I can master these techniques and apply them. Need a lot of self-discipline. Not easy.
