Everything feels like a crisis to you and you spend much of your time putting out fires, leaving you without much time for your biggest priorities.

What to do: Identify your most important goals. List the things you need to accomplish within a given timeframe. Work on other items only if you finish your must-do’s for the timeframe. Also, try setting aside “work blocks” on your calendar to work on your highest priorities, and don’t let yourself schedule over them.
