Career Advice

As we continue to talk about topics like burnout as well as work-life balance, it’s important to get real about strategies. Because the reality is that sometimes life is completely and utterly overwhelming. A new job, a big promotion, a new baby, an illness, or any other major life event can throw your day to day into a swirl. No matter how organized and competent you are.

So how does one possibly find success in a situation like that? Jackie and John Coleman co-wrote an amazing article for the Harvard Business Review outlining how to get through these hard times. It turns out that focusing on a few key habits when life gets busy is one way to keep you and your commitments on track. “Daily or weekly habits aligned with your long-term goals can keep you on track even when it’s hard to think ahead, and they can add stability in an otherwise unsteady time,” says the authors.

They recommend asking yourself, “What are the 5-10 things you need to do daily or weekly to keep life on track?” When choosing these five to 10 habits, considering mental and physical health, maintaining relationships, and building in time for personal and professional reflection is important. Learn more about how to choose these habits over at the Harvard Business Review.
