Tips for the Master Procrastinator: (get used to the to-do list)
Pick up a new set of skills. Alright, it’s usually a good thing to be a master at something. Not in this case. You’re too good at the skills of procrastination and it’s time to work on your focus. One practical step you can take to do this is making a to-do list every evening before your next day of work. This is to get in the habit of mapping out your work day every day prior, so you don’t walk into work not knowing where to start.
Tips for Mr. & Ms. Anxiety: (one task at a time)
We have good news for you, multitasking is not all it’s cracked up to be. Especially if you’re someone who gets overwhelmed easily, you should forget about multitasking. The greatest way to conquer your worries about tasks is focusing on ONE task at a time. That’s it. Don’t let anything else come between you and the task at hand.
Tips for He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Distracted: (find a helping hand)
You leave no room for distractions. You are able to focus in on one particular issue and work until it’s done. One huge tip for someone with your work ethic is this: Delegate, delegate, delegate. With your level of focus, you have the tendency to try to do it all on your own. Even though you’re a great worker, you will burn yourself out if you don’t ask for help.
Tips for Chief Tortoise-Hare: (find your sweet-spot and say 'no' more)
Pump the breaks. As we said in your quiz results, you will burn yourself out if you continue to go full speed ahead for hours at a time. A few tips: (1), find the balance between when you’re most productive and when you are close to crashing. Don’t bring yourself to the brink of burning out everyday. (2), say no. Something that might be adding to your load is not knowing when to turn down a task. Just remember, it’s okay to say no to something when you don’t have energy or time to give to it.
Tips for Chancellor of Time Management: (give a little gift)
