    Do you constantly say that you have too much to do and too little time? This seems to be a common sentiment in today's world. Everyone has too much on their list and too many obligations to keep up with.

    你總是說要做的事太多,但時間太少? 這似乎是當今這個世界每個人的同感。每個人要做的事很多,要履行的義務也很多。

    Have you stopped to consider why your load is so big? How did you end up under so many obligations in the first place? What is all of this weight holding you back?

    你有沒有停下來想過為什么你有這么多的負擔呢?要從這么多的責任中解脫出來,首先你要怎么做? 在這些負擔里是什么阻礙了你?

    A better question may be…where did all this weight come from? If you are truly overloaded, how did you get there? Over time you have taken on more than you can handle. It did not happen instantly or overnight.


    Often, this is self-inflicted time management. You have been practicing habits and behaviors that have lead to this situation. You have been creating your own stress and life friction. How can we limit this load that prevents us from being productive and enjoying our day?


    There are many habits that can lead to task overload. Here are six behaviors to help avoid personal overload:


    1. Be Organized Enough to Know Your Load


    This is an important first step. Do you even know how much you are carrying? When people say, "I have too much to do, "I immediately ask to see their todo list and project board. Ironically, many of them do not have a single organized view of what they need to do. Multiple lists and scattered papers present a jumbled perspective. If you don't know how much is on your plate, how can you hope to efficiently get it done?

    這是重要的第一步。你知道你承載了多少嗎?當人們說,“我有太多事情要做,” 我立即要求看一看他們的代辦事項清單。很諷刺的是,他們中的許多人都沒有條理性地組織好他們需要做些什么。多重清單和凌亂的紙條呈現的是亂七八糟的觀念。如果你不知道你有多少,你怎么能希望有效地完成它呢?

    2. Just Say No


    Are you unable to tell others no? Do you constantly accept tasks and obligations from others? This can be a leading source of the extra weight that holds you back."Can you do this for me?""Can you help me with that?" Sometimes, the right answer is"No."

    你不會拒絕別人?你總是接受別人給的任務和義務?這可能是產生阻礙你前進的額外負荷的一個主要來源?!澳隳軒臀覀€忙嗎?” “幫我一下?” 有時候,正確的回答是“No”。

    3. Finish to Done


    Another reason your load may be too big is that you do not ever fully complete things. Starting tasks is easy, but finishing them is hard. You start many tasks, but do not see them to completion. A few items completed is always more effective than many things begun.


    4. Don't Do Everything Yourself


    Busy people are often guilty of trying to do everything themselves. They don't delegate, either because they are too busy to do so, or they believe that someone else could not do it as well as they can. Delegation, where appropriate, is a key skill to productivity. Ensure you are not keeping tasks that would be better served by someone else.


    5. Set Clear Expectations


    Clear expectations are essential to efficient workflow. "Who is going to do that?" "When is it going to get done?" Have you ever found yourself working on something, only to find out that someone else was also doing it? No one was clear about whose todo list it was on.

    明確預期是有效的工作流程所必不可少的?!罢l去做?” “什么時候完成?” 你有沒有發現當自己在忙的時候,卻發現別人也在做同樣的事?沒人清楚自己的代辦事項清單中要做的事。

    6. Defend Your Time


    Do you defend your time? If not, people will steal it. Why is it acceptable to let people take our time? We wouldn't let them steal our money, yet time seems to be free game. You need to be ruthless in protecting your most valuable resource: your time. Ensure that you have first priority on your time and do not let others unnecessarily waste it. (A good method for this is to"Block Your Time.")


    It is difficult to perform at your best when you are under too much weight from your tasks and obligations. Keeping yourself from getting in an overloaded status is important. Be aware of what you are carrying. Make choices on what you take on. And take charge of your time and tasks.
