Bandwidth: Navigating Cognitive and Emotional CapacityBalance
When was the last time you got to the end of your task list for the day? Never – there is always more to do at home and work. Whether it’s taking on a new project at work or pursuing a new hobby at home, there are times when you just don’t have the bandwidth to take on any more. And that lack of bandwidth is negatively impacting your ability to truly achieve your goals. So what’s to be done? That is what we’re talking about today: identifying and overcoming limited bandwidth.
Cheers to our 150th episode! What better way to celebrate than with a topic we both have challenges with? Bandwidth. There are only so many tasks you can work on at any given time, even for us multitaskers. And when overwhelmed, it takes an emotional toll on how we organize cognitively. In our experience, it’s essential to acknowledge your bandwidth and stick to it. There’s no denying that the to-do lists can often feel never-ending. But we can’t let our stressors affect our quality of work. It takes boundaries to ensure that there is just enough on your plates, both in our personal and work lives. How can we identify our maximum bandwidth, and set boundaries? Join us as we discuss our strategies and goals for keeping it all balanced.
