A good recommendation is to make an "active pause" in the middle of the work day, to allow employees to do relaxing activities like exercise, dance, or take a nap. This pause helps to renovate forces and finish the working day successfully.
Lunches, Breaks together and fun activities every Friday before the weekend.
Pushing people that have the accountability for prioritizing the work load to do that.
for me it is driven by mindset, perspective or reframing. Not so much by time management, task prioritisation or other technical techniques. Though I use MS Todo and mindmapping to organise myself.
When I was overwhelmed by work, I took on more as a volunteer, at the time 60 days a year, and voila, suddenly was achieving more and better. As a volunteer you understand that you cannot do anything by yourself, but depend on others. Delegation, trust and forgiveness, decisiveness and humility grow.
This infects your professional attitudes, your perspectives, even if you are detail-oriented.
If you love what you do, it doesn't seem like work. The challenge is if the work is tedious, you have no control over how it is done, or there is no opportunity to grow.
Thank you so much for sharing the importance of volunteerism. I do agree with the powerful impact of volunteerism personally and the positive effects of altruism. I thank you also for reminding us of these time-tested values that needs to be cultivated: Delegation, trust and forgiveness, decisiveness and humility grow. I will explore the Microsoft ToDo as I have not used it yet. Thank you for the suggestion.
