When the going gets tough, the tough get going

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. People say that they work under pressure. Well, for those who enjoy pressure, they say a different word viz. pleasure. They work under pleasure not pressure. It's true that the ones with the mettle do not run away from work, but the more you pile on, the better they get.

Everyone has to report to somebody. Imagine the work of your higher ups or their higher ups. The day itself is filled with so many activities, that they have a tough time allocating attention to every event of the day. Mails, Reports, Interviews etc. which take up a majority amount of time. A good way to break the mould would be by planning.

All unplanned and planned activities should be clearly estimated for, at the beginning of the day. The more the planned activity, the better. Secondly we should focus on the quadrant that is important work. By this I mean value adding. Rather than attending to those unending 'douse the fire' situations we need to be focussing towards long term effects of activities.

Finally the most important aspect : focus. Do net get out of focus into emotional agendas or grapevine conversations. We should know what our circle of influence is and try to make changes within the same. Worrying about things that we can hardly control does not make any sense. In fact the word worry itself should be buried.

Let's not work under pressure; let's work under pleasure.
