Got a lot on your plate? Feeling especially stressed out? If you’re not getting to everything on your to-do list, it may be because you’re actually sabotaging your own efforts.
It probably feels like there’s not enough time in the day. You may be overwhelmed by everything that needs to get done. And your list is long and getting longer.
And that might actually be part of the problem.
Most people I speak with have too many items on their to-do lists. Frequently, they have more than 10 items on the list to get done in one day. The way they manage their to-do list—not the actual amount of work they have—is actually a significant contributor to their stress.
