10 Tips to Deal with an Overwhelming Post-Holiday To-Do List

A post at HRVoice gives you ten ways to slice and dice that post-holiday to-do list. Begin by purging what you do not need from your files and email. Block out time and prioritize. Use subject lines to catalog email. Keep the momentum going once you are up and running. Be prepared for “bonus” work time, such as when a flight is delayed. Put time limits on meetings. Divide projects into smaller, doable components. Identify verbs that need attention, namely words such as “call” or “invite,” and try to dissect and replace nebulous longer-term words like “plan” or “create.” Learn to delegate clearly. And finally, implement a weekly debrief so you can stop and see the shape that your work has taken. When you stay agile, nothing can knock you down.
