3 Steps To Triage Your Life And Move From Crazy Mode To Ready Mode With The Right Leadership And Coaching
If you’re stressed your hormones rise which can affect your memory, judgment, and impulse control.
So how can you master your Ready Mode so that you can manage stress when you’re heading towards crazy mode?
You can use the same tactics applied in a busy hospital emergency department.
Here Are 3 Steps To Triage Your Life:
Prioritize your tasks by a degree of urgency – red means to deal with them immediately. Yellow is severe but does not need immediate attention. And Green is minor and can wait. Focus your efforts on the red tasks first.
Remember! If you’re in crazy mode, you will be reacting to everything as if it’s red. So know your reds. They’re what’s most important. And be aware of the noisiest demands, as they’re not always red.
There is one more level, however. One that you can use for the worst-case scenarios, and that’s Black.
Black tasks are when there’s nothing you can do. These can be challenging tasks to let go of, but they are the ones that you MUST take off your list. Otherwise, you will have no hope of saving your reds.
To move from Crazy Mode to Ready Mode, you need to prepare for crazy and set things up so that your Red, Yellow, and Green tasks are easier to do. Find ways to reduce your daily decision-making.
For example, as you plan your week, automate and schedule known important tasks. Then, during the week, when everyone and everything is demanding your time, you’ve already planned what to do and reduced any unnecessary, crazy, last-minute decision-making.
Co-locate! Store any equipment or information you need for a specific task together in the same place. This way, you won’t spend time and energy looking for what you need when you need it.
Get out of your head. Don’t let all of your problems derail you. If your brain chatter starts, you panic, and start to get tunnel vision, become aware that you’ve entered Crazy Mode. You cannot solve anything this way.
Give yourself a break. Actively walk away from your desk for 10 minutes. Decide that this will help you see the bigger picture.
Be compassionate to yourself and others with your words. If you prime your brain with this intention, you can enable the inner working of your mind to widen your perception so that your brain can take in broader more powerful information. You will see more possibilities. You will make better decisions.
