In the modern workplace the feeling of being overwhelmed is the new normal. And it only gets worse when we don’t organize our thoughts, projects and to-do lists. From the most senior leaders to the frontline staff, we simply don’t take the time to get organized because we’re too busy (and maybe also because we’re using being “busy” as an excuse). The stress resulting from this only grows and grows, eventually forcing us to face it at its most demanding peaks. This is by no means mentally, emotionally or physically healthy. But with the right amount of focus, it is completely preventable.
