The reality is that in the current work era, we have two roles: a worker role, and a manager role. In our manager role we need to develop a plan to prioritise all these seemingly conflicting priorities. We may blame our senior management at work, yet it is not their role to get us organised and schedule our time – that’s ours alone!
Develop a habit of starting your day, with a plan that prioritises and schedules the most urgent and most important things, as though it was going to be done by someone else. In your 24 hours, balance work goals, home goals, personal goals as well as long term versus short. Then you can switch hats to worker mode and execute the plan that your manager-self created.
