So you’ve got a huge load of work on, more than you’ve ever faced before, now’s the time to utilise some Positive Mental Techniques…
Before you panic and put your head in a spin over how you’re going to deal with your big workload – take a breath and read these tips on how to deal with these challenges head on:
Deconstruct Your Problems
If you take a look at your work from a distance then it’s always going to look like an impossible task.
Before you suffer a complete mental breakdown – simply break down each task that you need to complete into little pieces. Write a list, colour code it if you like, then simply work through it systematically.
Tackle The Challenge Directly
Whatever you do, if you’re faced with a heap of novel scenarios that seem daunting, don’t beat around the bush.
Procrastinating will get you nowhere and will only increase the pressure on you at the end of the day. Approach your list of tasks proactively and methodically – if you hit a brick wall, don’t be disheartened – simply set one task aside and move on to the next one.
Keep Your Head In The Game
It can be all too easy to be overwhelmed by a host of new tasks, but don’t let it get to you.
A positive mental attitude is all you need to defeat any mental blockages – don’t let negative vibes harsh your buzz. Stay absolutely on point and you’ll find that your workload will swiftly disappear – distraction will only lead you to the dark corners of the internet and endless snacking.
Focus On The Positives
With each task and new challenge completed, take a moment to revel in your accomplishment.
By focusing on your achievements you can take heart and head into your next challenge with a renewed sense of purpose. It can be all too easy to dismiss completed tasks as just ‘another job down’ – try and celebrate even the most mundane of tasks – progress is progress and you should be proud of yourself.
You’ve done it!
The work has been smashed, you’ve triumphed over adversity. You may have faced hard challenges, but you’ve come out of it the other side a stronger, better person. Look back on the work you’ve done and take pride in your achievements.
