Blank. Our mind's blank, for some reason. It's frustrating; we don't know why our brain's refusing to cooperate with us at all.
Needless to say, this is a problem. Our words haven't been this robotic since we last forced ourselves to write while with fever. We wanted our post to be intelligent for once (uhm, like most career blogs?), but we couldn't pull out the right words.
Actually, we're supposed to talk about scheduling as a stress management tool for today and we feel bad that we couldn't even make a proper introduction. But don't worry, we're not going to force out words just so we can make this longer. Anyway, if you've been following our blog since the very start, you probably already know what inspired today's discussion topic. At least, we have the assurance that the message will be shared properly.
In particular, our favorite article whose title is "15 Ways to Beat Stress at Work" and can be read at http://sg.jobsdb.com/SG/EN/Resources/JobSeekerArticle/Beat%20Stress%20at%20Work?ID=649 is what inspired this post. Every item in the list is worth the try, but we'd like to stress out point 14.
Pace yourself. Schedule the most taxing jobs for the times when your energy is naturally high. Likewise, if you are prone to low energy late in the day, for example, use that time to read industry journals or opening mails.
Like most career experts, we believe that productivity is a "Relative" measure. What boosts your mood for work, may not work for another. Major project? It is suggested that you do it during the part of the day when you are most active.
