One of the best coping strategies for addressing Work Life Journey red flags is time management. The following ideas come from the work of Dr. Stephen Covey. Please answer the following questions:

  • Do you do your best work under pressure?
  • Do you always seem to be rushing between places and events?
  • Do you continually think that someday you’ll be able to do what you really want to do?

If you answered YES to these questions then you suffer from the URGENCY addiction. You like to handle crises and solve problems. You put URGENT matters or activities as your top priority…thereby letting IMPORTANT activities that are not as pressing slide. Time management is about emphasis on the IMPORTANT things in life.

Consider the Time Management Matrix in Covey’s book, First Things First.

Build in a cushion

A planner has to balance the desire for good and efficient work with the time allotted for the completion of the task. This requires a schedule that lays out the steps of each task and the typical estimated time for completion. Cushion time is for those errors and problems that will set you behind schedule.

The nappuccino

the nappuccino involves taking a short nap (10-20 minutes) immediately after consuming coffee so that you are more energized when you awake. This works really well because it takes 20 minutes for a person to feel the effects of caffeine.
