Terrified of the so many deadlines and required revisions you need to address and urgently work on? Don’t know where to begin and how to accomplish the series of projects listed on your notepad? Tired of going home in ungodly hours? Your HR team can’t seem to headhunt the right person for the job? We just can’t snap our finger or weave a magic wand to have all these sorted, right? There are just no specific spells and no instant solutions as to how to resolve the quandary. How we view the issues and tackle each given situation matters a lot. The following cues might help:
Tormented of your work being constantly changed and rejected by your executives? De-motivated to rewrite your presentation for the nth time? Sigh -- sometimes that’s how things work. To ease up the worries, try to search a fun activity where you can be your goofy self with no fear of being graded, judged, or even manipulated. Write a blog perhaps. Join an enriching seminar. Participate an annual Philippine conference of your liking. Go to the gym. Attend a yoga class.
It’s okay to laugh at your booboos once in a while. You missed sending an email to a colleague? You forgot the meeting at the boardroom set for this morning? That’s okay, it happens. So many things to do; your mind is clogged of what appears like an endless task. Laugh. Breathe. But learn from the mistake and attempt not to commit it next time.
- Reach out to friends who enjoy your company despite your endless rants.
You don’t really have to talk about your problems to everyone in the office but it is a big relief to discuss and unload some of your burdens to one or two friends who are emphatic and willing listeners.
- Look forward to do something you love, even at impulse.
It’s got to be like a huge escape for you, perhaps just some petty things you’ve always wanted to do. Buy a venti frap. Watch a stage play. Munch two choco donuts in a row. Queue up for your favourite milk tea. Grab a novel. Whatever you have in mind, find time to do it and it will surely broaden your perspective even for just a bit.
