Stack, who’s recently published fifth book, “What To Do When There’s Too Much To Do” is the culmination of more than a decade’s work on rethinking work and personal strategies in order to get more done by doing less. Overwork, Stack says, may be slowly killing people who are trying to accomplish too much without a realistic schedule in place, and without the necessary tools to perform efficiently.
“Overwork may be slowly killing you, emotionally, physically, and/or spiritually,”
“The core message is simple: reduce, reduce, reduce! It's always better to do less, not more, so you can do better, more focused work.”
Stack’s blog offers some new insight into her “Work Less, More Success” strategy, offering tips on focusing on the necessary tasks by reducing the “to-do” list that can actually bog down many people. Stack suggests readers apply the medical concept of triage to reduce their to-do lists to manageable proportions.
“The emergency room doesn’t treat patients in the order they walk in the door,” Stack says. “You shouldn’t work in the order tasks arrive in your inbox or by who screams the loudest.
“Remain flexible at all times, realizing priorities can shift on the fly, with new high-priority tasks muscling their way into the workflow and pushing aside less-important items,” Stack says.
The blog discusses exercises for identifying key tasks and then making the time to complete them. What it boils down to, she says, is self-management – most specifically, the willingness to stop misusing time.
Stack discusses her Productivity Workflow Formula (PWF) that walks the reader through the process of identifying those obstacles that get in the way of completing important tasks and applying must-follow strategies to change poor time management habits in order to achieve defined goals.
