With the France bill coming up and intiates to stop emails after work; research gets us to take ample action on poor management and leadership rather than technology as the mainstay of working long hours, and not able to switch off from the network!
Inspite of the relevance of Bill to cut down on stress and create balance, implemented or not - each person would want to put in a set of measures to take heed and course correct self, already being nudged by ever-more challenging situations at work or any other facet !
Few are to work in the circumstances, without the needed smart work around managing self, here are some.
I never came upon any of my discoveries through the process of rational thinking ~ Albert Einstein
# Mental Mapping
Keeping our thinking sorted in a level on mental maps, that are already placed in our heads (creating them would require you to have buckets /baskets placed in different spaces as left for work and right for life-all things social); do this not only begets clarity, but also the method and mode to do what is next in on the agenda.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often ~ Winston Churchill
Akin to moment-to-moment visits in your thoughts each, every time you take up on some work in which ever the area is about. Take note of:
1. what is the activity that you are about to take up
2. how this is going to affect you in all facets of life ( work-job, work-satisfaction, success )
3. in which bucket are you ?
4. how would this affect the other bucket (work and life)
An awareness to this level is enough to keep you even-minded about what you expect of yourself!
Unless commitment is made; there are only promises and hopes - but no plans! ~ Peter Drucker
# TO-DO Lists / Goals List
Assuming each has one or we need to create one (how to - more on this one in the next blog) and sorting them accordingly to either buckets (work and social-life) now writing them every once in a while actually helps sort them out (suggest, do this twice / week)!
"Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do." ~ Johann von Goethe
# Schedule 'Me Time'
To visit the Goals List and Bucket List each week at least twice and keep making corrections as you re-write them in a new sheet !
Follow these few steps to getting clarity to where you are planning to be going vs. having clarity onto where your actual route is taking you!?
