comment Which is more productive: doing lots of work in parallel or one by one?
@Muz - I would agree. However, if you're at the point where you have to multitask brushing your teeth, you may have lost the forest for the trees.

comment How to stop being a perfectionist?
@Anisha Kaul - Remember that the full quote is ""Jack of all trades, master of none, Certainly better than a master of one"". I also struggle with the need for 'completeness' before I can move along to something new, but very often all those little extra elements don't contribute to the whole in proportion to the time spent pursuing them.

comment How do I stay motivated when there's too little to get done?
I find that I'm unable to 'trick' myself with self-imposed arbitrary limitations. Oh, how I wish I could though.

I also find meditation and yoga to be very helpful in this regard.

comment How do you manage stress and anxiety when you have dozens of things to do, even If they are organised in detail?
That is true. Life is often difficult and harsh and you sometimes need to do what you have to do to survive it, which takes away from other things. I'm not advocating mindless acceptance of whatever happens to you. I'm saying to accept and come to peace with the human limitations you have to work within, and use that to make your best choices. Yeah, sometimes your options suck. But if life is a constant crisis and the stress is unbearable, no time management technique is going to be a solution. The problem is likely bigger than that, and you might consider seeing a professional for help.

You can find great ways to manage time and tasks. However, time is a limited resource. I think working on a major project at work and a major project at home is doable, but perhaps you may need to cut out some minor projects. It's all about deciding what is worth while enough for your precious time. Sometimes that makes for hard decisions, but there's no perfect formula that can make that decision for you. The closest I think you can get is to enjoy what you choose to do, and be fully present in doing it. Spend that precious time well.
