When to Say NO at Work?
When we join our dream workplace, we work really hard in our daily tasks to meet the deadlines and also for our professional growth. However, we often get more work or asked to deliver more with the expectation that we can always do extra. This perception continues even when you have other non-work related commitments.
Balancing work life is an art, and only when we know how to balance it, we can lead a peaceful life. Everything in our life needs our time and we should know how much time is needed for each one of them.
There may be a situation when you are asked to do some tasks which are urgent and time-sensitive. Those instances are quite understandable and there is no harm going the extra mile to do those tasks. However, if it gets too frequent and you are compromising on health, family because of this, you should raise your voice. There is no harm in letting people know your bandwidth and limitations. Sometimes it is difficult for people to understand your situation but at least they become aware that you can’t do beyond a certain limit.
No organization would let go of an employee who they consider as an asset and they will help him to manage his work more efficiently.
