We live in a busy world. Constant distractions, demands of the day, surprise problems to be dealt with – they can all make a day go downhill quickly. As far as management goes, I’ve worked in all sorts of situations. I’ve had great managers and terrible managers, and I’ve been a great manager and a bad manager. Whatever the workload or demands or the people you’re working with, the true secret is to focus on managing yourself.

If you’re part of a team and you’re unorganized and behind on projects, every member of your team will get dragged down, too.

Don’t let the title fool you – these are really just life hacks for being better at managing yourself, and we can (probably) all use some improvement.
