Talking through how to manage multiple projects like a pro – without losing your mind.
Why hello, there! As I come out of an incredible busy month of April – I thought I’d have a nice little sit down to chat with you all about managing multiple projects at the same time. When I think through my work and blog life, it can definitely get a bit hectic now and then. As I muddle through, I’ve definitely picked up a trick or two along the way that make it much easier to keep my head screwed on straight – for the most part, anyway.
No matter what profession you’re in…we’re all shouldering multiple priorities at the same time. That’s the nature of the beast in the fast-paced world we live (and work) in these days. Meaning? You really have to learn to master your time management and be able to efficiently juggle multiple priorities, deadlines and projects without going absolutely insane along the way. Obviously we’re all human and we all have those times where it’s all a bit much and you want to crawl into a hole beneath your desk and never come out. Since that’s usually not an option, I thought I’d share things I’ve learned along the way on how to manage multiple projects at the same time.
How to Manage Multiple Projects
1. Segment and Compartmentalize Your Time
2. Project Plan Everything
3. Be Present and Declutter Your Headspace
Time is the most limited resource. As such, don’t waste time you have working on one project or attending one meeting while mentally running through things for another project. You will drive yourself bonkers and cut down on your productivity in one sweep.
Mindfulness is such a buzzword for healthy living in general, but it’s also very valuable in your work space as well. I find a great way to help manage multiple projects at the same time is to declutter my thoughts and stay present in my tasks. Try not to think about Project 3 while working on Project 2. Obviously we’re all human and bound to get sidetracked now and then…but when you do, just redirect your attention to the project at hand.
