2 Rules to Reduce Stress & Manage Time
Imagine a stage
 performance…
….with a dozen instruments playing different
           tunes at the same time!
Does it sound irritating and painful?
Realize…
Our mind is like that stage, with many things
       fighting to take center stage
This naturally leads to…
        Stress !
While we try to work
      on one thing…
Things that occurred
in the past crash
into our minds…
Things expected to
   come up in future
crash into our minds
Realize that only when mind
and the work at hand are in
  sync do we avoid stress
So, the first rule in time and
stress management is:
A simple way to do it is…



Set time for each activity



Focus on one activity at a time
Now the second point:
Imagine you are hungry and trying to eat your food…
What would you do if your friends keeps shoving more and
           more food items onto your plate?
Would you…
  1    Leave things half-eaten?
      2 Feel overwhelmed? or
        3 Ask them to stop?
We face the same thing
 at work where people
keep shoving work at us
In the middle of our work,
these people crash in with
other ‘urgent’ things…
This naturally leads to…
        Stress !
So, the second rule in time and
stress management is:
A simple way to do this is…




  Not to allow people to
     crash in on time
allocated to other activity
Make a note of what they
want, but finish your task
‘on the stage’ first.
If your mobile is a
regular time-crasher,
you could keep it mute
and return calls later!
So, the 2 simple but practical rules to
reduce stress and manage time better…
Realize..


 This is all the

time you have.             YOU
   Either time-

 crashers and              take
mind-crasher...
