Projects pile up … time slips further and further away … your stress mounts … and suddenly you find yourself in survival mode, struggling to stay on top. Sure, you can do your work, but it’s all those other things that keep you from it.

So many obstacles keep you from accomplishing your work, while you just become more and more stressed out. Interruptions, missing information, unclear direction, not enough time, other people not giving you what you need … the list goes on.
