Managing Work Pressure
I see time as a limited resource; no matter what we do, we only have 24 hours a day. In order to cope up with these challenges, firstly one needs to realize the hard fact that we can’t sustainably work through all of them. Realizing this would enable us to make smart choices such as prioritizing and allocating our time and energy for every task. This doesn’t mean that we should restrict ourselves at any point; we should have an attitude of a learner and a striver. The idea is to make smart choices and not to be fearful of making mistakes. A true manager trusts his capabilities and tests his natural abilities so he can overcome all the barriers that helps in coming up with a stronger mindset.
One can only enjoy his work when he has an entrepreneurial mindset for work. If you have a passion, determination and love for anything you would achieve it sooner or later. Any job would definitely stress you out if you don’t have the right mindset and measures to plan and act on it. The most important thing is to accept your strengths and weaknesses and develop a can do attitude. It encompasses responsibility, perseverance, with a focus on good work ethics, initiative, positive thinking, pro activeness and a planned vision. Importance also needs to be placed on time management. If someone is really interested in improving himself he needs to identify his strengths and weaknesses. Once you have identified your weaknesses and strengths you can allocate your time appropriately where you can bridge the missing gaps and take advantage of your strengths. Again, if you are not sure what you are doing than definitely work would stress you out. Uncertainty and doubts is a killer and a true manager has the ability and insight to see the flow and sequencing of his activities, acting on that plan is secondary.
Consider your priorities and try to discard and delegate the unnecessary and unimportant ones. Use the people around you efficiently in order to maximize results and minimize the work pressure. In a true synergy all the team members should be on the same wavelength.
