Best Ways To Work Smart – Part 2

1. Learn to say no

Such a small word, yet so hard to say. When someone asks you to do something that is not your passion or priority, politely but firmly declines.

Remind yourself that saying no to one thing gives you the freedom to say yes to something else that is more fulfilling and more worthy of your time and skills.
2. Stop aiming for perfection

You will seldom reach it, and it is almost always unnecessary. Perfectionism often leads to micro-managing, poor relationships with co-workers, procrastination, low productivity, depression, stress, and anxiety. The most successful people are those who are satisfied when a job is well done and save their need for perfection for the few, truly important things.

3. Know when to ask for help

If you are overwhelmed at work, and it is causing undue stress, don’t suffer in silence. Shed the Superwoman/Superman image and explain your situation to your boss or supervisor. Untenable work situations can usually be alleviated, but it will take some assertiveness on your part.
