One of the biggest struggles people deal with is learning how to stay productive when under a large amount of stress. There are many ways handle this struggle including attempting to identify what you can control in the situation. Also you can accept what you can do as good enough, at least for now.
- IDENTIFY WHAT YOU CAN CONTROL: Part of the anxiety that occurs during such urgent situations comes from feeling a loss of control
- IDENTIFY THE “MUST-DOS”: We all have tasks that need to get done to fulfill our responsibilities. However, high-performing individuals often go beyond the basics and take on other to-dos—that’s often what makes them high performers
- CCEPT “GOOD ENOUGH”—FOR NOW:This is also a good time to let go of perfectionism and accept “good enough,” Clark says. When you’re good at and take pride in what you do, it can be tough to do the minimum acceptable job
