Sometimes I lay awake on Sunday nights, contemplating everything I need to accomplish during the upcoming week. Like you, I wear many hats: professional worker, teacher, student, wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, volunteer etc. There is always too much to do and not enough time. For strategies that address these challenges, I offer the follow suggestions:

• Do not postpone important matters that are unpleasant. Jobs rarely get more pleasant by being postponed. Do it now!

• Do difficult jobs first, when you are at your best. Look after minor jobs when you are tired.\

• If you have several phone calls to make, do them all in a burst.

• When you start a piece of work, try to finish it without interruptions. If you have to finish it later, you will lose time picking up where you left off.

• Ensure that you have given yourself sufficient time to complete individual tasks, taking into account your daily interruptions.

• Learn to say ‘No’.

• Monitor how you use your time, and make conscious changes in your behavior.

Stress and fatigue are rarely caused by the things you have done, but by the thought of what you haven’t done!
