An Exercise to Reduce Burnout (and Extra): Start a List of Every Single Thing You Do at Work

No, this isn’t one other request for submissions to our Day within the Life of a Nonprofit Communicator weblog sequence (however you might be welcome to submit yours as half of this train).

I need to encourage you to do a easy task:

Make a listing of all of the belongings you do in a day (or week) at work – each massive and small.

That is NOT simply your to-do listing. Your to-do lists don’t usually embody issues like surprising cellphone calls or emails, placing out fires, encouraging colleagues, answering questions, and so forth.

Seeing each little factor you do laid out like this allows you to:

  1. See if you’re doing method an excessive amount of and the place you possibly can reduce or delegate
  2. Examine your to-do listing (or job description) with what you really do
  3. Understand how a lot information and experience you even have
  4. Put together for conferences together with your boss or board (particularly yearly evaluations or requests for raises or workers/funds will increase)

This listing will provide help to stop burnout, handle expectations, fight imposter syndrome, and understand your value.

You can maintain your listing in your pc, in a journal, on sticky notes, on a white board, or simply a piece of paper in your desk.

When you’ve began making your listing, tell us what stunned you and what insights you’ve gained.
