“I don’t have time.”
“I’m too busy.”
“I have too much to do, I’ll never get it all done.”
You’ve heard the term The power of positive thinking; negative thinking holds the same power. To combat feeling out of control, catch those phrases you tell yourself and rephrase them from a more positive or “in control” viewpoint.
- Focus on what you CAN do rather than on what you can’t.
- Proactively adjust your schedule or rebook items that can be better served in the future.
- Consider your tasks as exciting challenges you are ideally prepared to overcome, rather than as chores running your workday.
Not only will you discover you’re more efficient but as a bonus your stress levels will reduce immensely.
You have the control.
You have the power.
You have the time.
An additional tip: The first time you catch yourself saying the negative phrases about work, write them down. These are the tasks you need to delegate to us!
