Whether you are working nine to five or working remote jobs, there is pressure to be exceptional, to surpass a milestone, or to bring in massive profits. This pressure can also stem from excessive workloads, or not having control in the decision-making process. It can be overwhelming and cause you to break down. To avoid this, we have put together three ways to deal with pressure at work.

  • Establish boundaries. You don’t have to be available 24/7. It’s perfectly normal to say you won’t be accessible for some time, maybe while hanging out with friends. Create clear boundaries between your work and your life. It reduces pressure and stress. Make sure you have a “me” time regularly.
  • Secondly, take time to renew your strength. To avoid the pressure and the burning out that comes with it, take your time to recharge your strength before going back to work. It is called “switching off”. Silence every other distraction and focus on getting your stress level reduced. Don’t joke with your time off. Spend it engaging in activities that are not work-related.
  • Most importantly, learn how to prioritize. You have four days to finish a project, you have a date with that new girl down the street, prioritize. Choose what you should do first and what should come after. If you start thinking about the situation, you will become overwhelmed. Learn to break tasks into bits.
  • Similarly, don’t hesitate to ask for help with you need one. You don’t have to do everything by yourself.

Steps for Effective Decision Making

  • 1. Specify the decision to be made. Firstly, you need to define the problem or situation that requires decision-making. It could be something as simple as deciding on a dinner outfit or something as complex as deciding a career path.
  • 2. List out your option. Even if the situation seems limited, try to make a list of possible options. Don’t evaluate at this point, just write what comes to your mind. Whether the idea seems crazy or not, put it down. You can always cross it off the list.
  • 3. Go over each option and weigh the outcome. List out every possible outcome for each option, whether it be negative or positive, put it down. Is the outcome worth it? Would you be able to forgive yourself after that kind of outcome? Answer all these questions before moving to the next step.
  • 4. Talk with your intuition. Imagine your ideal self, what would he or she think of this decision? If he or she wouldn’t, what would they have done differently? Picture every outcome in steps 3 and grade which of them you felt proudest of. Which of the outcomes made you feel like a better person?
  • 5. Make a choice. Yes, this is the hardest step. You must be ready to accept whatever comes out of that decision. You should be ready to bear the responsibilities.
  • 6. Execute your decisions joyfully. Don’t drain yourself thinking about the other options you could have gone with. Go ahead and implement your decision with joy.
  • 7. Evaluate your decision. This is the most important step. If you don’t take time to go over your decision, you won’t learn valuable lessons from it. Ask yourself feel questions. Was the result you got expected? Would you make this same decision again? Draw wisdom from the decision you have made.

In conclusion, always weigh the pros and cons before making any decision. Follow these seven steps closely for effective decision-making.
