Relaxing in the middle of a task tornado

Ever have one of those days when you feel like you are in the middle of a task and project tornado? Times like those remind me of one of David Allen’s mantras from his book “Ready for Anything: 52 Productivity Principles for Work and Life”:

Relax, refocus

The other two members of my team are going on leave for the next week (one on study leave and the other on much needed general leave) and my office feels a lot like this right now.

    I can totally relate. When I have a super hectic day, especially when it involves lots of correspondence across multiple projects, I find leaving the office and going for a walk to help quite a bit.

    Sometimes I go for a coffee away from the office, other times I just take a stroll up around the block. Definitely makes a difference and helps with the focus. 🙂
