4 strategies to #StayFocused If You’re Assigned to Multiple Projects Simultaneously
Most of us are juggling multiple projects with different teams at the same time. Switching attention between tasks takes time and saps focus and energy. Moving between teams, mostly requires you to adjust to different roles — you might be the boss on one but a junior member of another; each team has its own unique cultures which requires energy to handle.
How can you #managetime, stress & productivity if you’re on multiple teams?
1. Get the big picture. This will help#prioritize instead of using an ad-hoc approach. Most of us approach our work 1 day at a time instead of taking stock of the multiple projects that require our attention.
2. Sequence strategically:Pick one task and focus on it intensely, rather than juggling. Start with the task that requires the greatest concentration and give it your undivided attention.#Discipline here is critical.
3. Protect yourself:When you’re focused on a high-priority task, block off unnecessary intrusions. You should only be disturbed if there is an emergency
4. Document &communicate progress: Keep #stakeholders informed of progress & #conflictinpriorities, if any. This builds trust & confidence
