Survival May Depend On Distinctions

When the workload becomes overwhelming, survival may depend upon making distinctions.

In this week’s podcast conversation, Claudia and I discuss survival techniques for those with too much work coming from too many places.

Distinctions. Consider the difference between:

  • Organizing
  • Prioritizing
  • Focusing

Organizing is a structural issue. The methods and means you currently use for keeping track of workload might not be serving you very well.

Prioritizing is a values issue. There may be lack of clarity about the relative importance of the many tasks demanding your attention.

Focusing is a attentiveness issue. You may become easily distracted, preoccupied or anxious in the midst of otherwise well-ordered efforts.

Where do you struggle most when the workload becomes more than you can bear?
