9. Not Delegating
If you’re trying to do everything yourself, you’re going to end up overwhelmed and stressed out. And that’s where delegation comes in.
“Delegation is key to maintaining your sanity,” says Benjamin Earley, CEO of Holt. “There’s no way you can do everything yourself, so it’s important to learn how to delegate tasks to others.”
Rather than trying to do everything yourself, try delegating some of the tasks on your to-do list. When you delegate, you’re able to focus on the things that are most important to you, and you’re able to get more done in less time.
10. Not Taking Time for Yourself
If you’re always on the go, it can be hard to find time for yourself. But if you don’t make time for the things you enjoy, you’re going to end up burnt out and stressed out.
“I make it a point every day to do something for myself, even if it’s just for a few minutes,” says Chandler Rogers, CEO of Relay. “It can be something as simple as reading a book, taking a walk, or taking a yoga class. But taking time for yourself is important so you can recharge and come back to your work refreshed.”
The body and mind need time to relax in order to be productive. When you take time for yourself, you’re able to come back to your work with a clear head and fresh ideas.
