You’re Never Going to Be “Caught Up” at Work. Stop Feeling Guilty About It.

Posted by @DanHinmon, Jul 20, 2018

In the emotional health category, HBR delivers some comforting news: You’re never going to be caught up, so stop feeling guilty about it.

Here’s how the author frames it:

“Most people I know have a to-do list so long that it’s not clear that there’s an end to it. Some tasks, even quite important ones, linger unfinished for a long time, and it’s easy to start feeling guilty or ashamed about what you have not yet completed.”

Read the article for good advice. Leave all those to-do post its behind, and have a great weekend!


As someone who works 15 hour days 7 days a week and still can never quite catch-up – I needed to read this today!
