Something occurred to me today. My job revolves around projects and tasks. Once every two weeks I meet with my superiors to prioritize, report progress on, and discuss said workload. At this point in time I also discuss the time frames needed to complete everything. You know, due dates.
Here I am, working late yet again, and it hits me like a bolt out of the blue - when I am picking my finish dates I'm assuming that I will be working late. I have been doing this to myself! I have been setting my own bar too high!
Now how to train myself to think inside of 40 hours, this will be challenging. Learning how to say NO. Concept.
