When overwhelmed, prioritize your tasks appropriately

No one can handle several tasks at once without getting overwhelmed - prioritizing your tasks will allow you to focus on the most important things one at a time. 


  1. Remind yourself to be calm.
    Don’t get stressed out about the amount of work you need to complete. Instead, take deep breaths and remind yourself that you need to be calm to identify solutions.
  2. Step back from the situation mentally and assess the scenario.
    Remove your emotions from the equation and think carefully about your current situation as well as what needs to be done. 
  3. Identify the highest-priority problem.
    Discuss a strategy with your team and implement it. Focus all your team’s effort on this problem.
  4. Move on to the next highest-priority problem.
    Follow the same steps - discuss a strategy and implement it.
