2. Master the To-Do List
When you are feeling stressed, stop, refocus, and re-organize your workload. For me, I jot down every single thing I need to do and re-prioritize my workload in a methodical way utilizing a to-do list. This allows me to re-assess and put everything into perspective, immediately reducing my stress levels. What do you need to get done and what do you want to get done? There is a big difference. Once you know the answer to this question - it’s simple. Start your to-do list with your MIT’s (mentioned above), followed by any other tasks you’re hoping to complete. Create realistic deadlines for each task and if any are able to be appropriately delegated, do so.
Work through your to-do list methodically and repeat this process daily.
