Take on challenges head on
Instead of seeing these new tasks as added work and stress out unnecessarily about it, calm down and approach all tasks head on.
Take a moment to sit down and think through what’s required of you.

Always ask questions

Don’t hold on to resentment
We all have that one colleague who likes to push our buttons and make things a little harder than they need to be. But it’s important to let go instead of letting it rule your life.
Let’s be honest, to a certain degree, all of us are perfectionists and we all tend to think that if we want to get something done, we should do it ourselves.
However, whenever you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed, make it a point to delegate work so you have more time on your hands.
Don’t worry about what you can’t control
We know it’s always easy to think overthink and think too much about the consequences of things that happen around you.

Don’t compare yourself to others
Growing up means acknowledging that there are always going to be people better than you are but you will always be you and only you will have the strengths you have.

Don’t always aim for perfection
Having a list of things to do can help with this. Seeing the things you need to do first on your list can help you focus on things that need to be done first.
