Several days ago I asked a young engineer to switch one small banner on the corporate website to a new one which I made.
Today I found out that there was still an old banner there. So, I asked him about it.
“I recognized it.” “I put it on my to-do list,” he said. ” But, I have too many tasks to cover.” He showed me so many small colorful Post-its on his desk. It was like a poor taste carpet.
“Why are you keeping so many tasks?”I said quietly, ” If I were you, I
will would immediately complete a small task like the one I asked you the other day. Then, I would try to focus on difficult or time-consuming tasks since I don’t want to stock so many tasks like this. It would give me pressure and would make me sick.”
“Oh,” he said. However, I’m not sure he understood what I meant.
I believe that priority management is part of stress management. I probably need to explain it to him more in detail in the near future. I hope he realizes its importance by himself.
Well, it’s great weather in Tokyo. The maximum temperature is 23 degrees Celsius! It seems like the Sakuras are full in bloom. I must say, spring has come!
