Because let’s call this whole shit show what it is: traumatizing. We’re all working through something traumatic. So, those feelings you’re experiencing such as lack of motivation, depression, anxiety, grief, dissociation – they are all part of your mind and soul trying to process what’s happening. And when you’re working through something traumatic, the last thing you need to worry about is how to be more productive.
At this point in my professional career, I don’t often get flustered or feel stressed at work. This is because I have set boundaries and rules for myself that I follow strictly. Not only are they a part of my self-care routine, they are also a part of my professional development because I thereby grant myself the opportunities to produce high quality work. What do you think of my 7 rules? What are your time management strategies? Share your thoughts in the comments.
