Shut down - really?

Because, only those who have burned, can burn out. Especially in everyday working life burnout appears to be a problem for many requirements.

Delegate - but how does it work?

Because of course I can as Coach simply say, "Delegate if you can, do your tasks in order."

You will think: how? When things change every few minutes, new e-mails come in with a beeping sound, Twitter messages have to be formulated in order to allow the “timeline” to participate in all new developments?

Be in the present!

How come? If there is no one to whom we can delegate, because we ourselves are brave individuals and that constantly?
