Ran into a good strategy for planning when things are so crazy you don’t believe you have time to plan.
Break your day into 3-hour chunks. Then, ask yourself, “What can I realistically get done in 3 hours.”
The 3-hour chunk creates a higher sense of urgency and focus. You can work on one project for 3 hours and then move on to another one of the “putting out the fire” project or issue.
Chunking is a great strategy when you’re overwhelmed.
