Step 104. Another good day, but still feeling overloaded and overwhelmed with work. The need to organise and structure my working and thinking is becoming increasingly important.

The challenge is to be able to focus during any downtime rather than need to unwind and escape. Thirty minutes between meetings can either be a relaxing break or a golden opportunity to develop and refine my work methods and organisation. A good balance would be 20–25 minutes of intense focus and 5–10 minutes of fun and relaxation. Let’s try that tomorrow and truly get on top of things.
