Avoiding the Burnout
By Nancy Ann
If you’re like me, it’s easy to load your schedule to a point where you really aren’t accomplishing any of the tasks that you’ve assigned yourself. This leads to frustration and disappointment. While you may be eager to get started on a new idea that suddenly pops into your head, be sure to first finish up your current project.
This is why you keep an Idea Notebook. You simply can’t work effectively on multiple projects all at once and expect complete them in a timely manner, not to mention quality outcome.
Instead, assign yourself two or three manageable projects, apply your focus to these projects, and complete them. Then you can go through your Idea Notebook and choose another project or two.
You will find satisfaction and pride with each completed project. This will add to your success. Juggling too many projects at one time will lead to burnout. You will find yourself overworked. You won’t feel successful because you won’t be completing anything.
New ideas are going to be coming up constantly. Jot them down in your notebook, leaving enough space so that you can add detail to them. Be content that these idea’s will all be waiting for you when you have completed your current assignments; at which point, you will be able to dedicate your time and energy to producing a work of quality.
