Sometimes it can feel like we have a never-ending stream of tasks and responsibilities, and as we come to the end of the year, this can exacerbate the feeling of pressure as we want to get everything done before the holidays.
In Episode 73 of Series 2 of the Find Grow Keep podcast, Karen discusses effectively handling workloads, sidestepping burnout, and attaining triumph even in the most challenging phases of the year with Barbara Clifford who is known as the “Time Tamer” and is the cofounder of the Hinwood Institute. Following are our top tips and takeouts from this discussion.
The Importance of Time and Stress Management
In business, every minute counts. Business owners and leaders juggle multiple responsibilities, from overseeing their teams to making critical decisions. To maintain their performance and well-being, mastering time and stress management is essential.
Efficient time management ensures that leaders can allocate their limited time resources effectively. By doing so, they can optimise productivity, tackle tasks efficiently, and find more room for innovation and strategic thinking. On the other hand, stress management is a vital component of maintaining a balanced and healthy work-life routine. High levels of stress can lead to burnout and decreased overall effectiveness, making it essential for leaders to find ways to manage and reduce it.
