We all know about the backlog:
- The work we never quite catch up on
- The to do list items that have fallen off the bottom of the page
- The promises large and small we haven’t quite managed to keep
- The dread of knowing that you could put in a hard day’s work today and still start tomorrow behind
Backlogs are horrible. They create emotional drag, a constant friction through our workdays.
There are ways to work against this – setting the bar low and just doing it now, and starting small are good places to start.
