Don’t be a yes man
Learning to say no is crucial in ensuring you don’t get overloaded. If you find it difficult to refuse requests from management or colleagues, delay answering so you have time to properly consider what you’re undertaking. Communicate better by using phrases like: “I’ll check my tasklist and get back to you,” or “I’ll need to review my calendar before committing to that.”
When it comes to finishing up your work day, switching off your device is as important as leaving the building. Sign out of your work email and set your status to “unavailable”. It will still be there in the morning. You’re not saving lives. (Note: If you are saving lives please feel free to respond to your emails.)
