“I sometimes get so overwhelmed with the tasks my boss gives me to do, so lately, I have tried to ask myself "is this too much right now?" before I say yes-- and if it is, I try to suggest another, less time consuming way to get it done, or ask for a longer delay, or even ask if she can actually take care of it, considering I have X and Y I'm hoping to focus on. It works so much better than I would have expected!”
