1-to-1s creates a buzz of people who want your time. Learn to protect it and stay healthy in the work, because you matter.
Our days may feel short or long, but one thing is certain; they are finite. In this work it is challenging to master our time. We work on issues that are urgent, important and emotive. Often lives are at stake. While it is understandable why so many of us overwork, it is not good for the cause, the people we love, or ourselves. To change the world we need you alive and well. Martyrs are no good to us folks on planet Earth.
To stop you turning into a husk of a human, here is how to protect your time:
Let small bad stuff happen to get home on time
Do not ignore the hole in your boat
Learn when to say no, so you can say yes to what matters
