Ease the Pressure of Your Tasks: A Guide to Stress-Free Task Management

When we feel like we’ve got too much to do, it’s understandable that the pressure gets to us. Task management is something that doesn’t need to get to the core of us. The reality is the tasks are always made up of subtasks that have their own place in the pecking order of getting a project completed successfully. How can we manage tasks with the bare minimum of stress?

Use Kanban

A kanban board is a visual representation of any project and the team’s overall progress. This can be a very effective method to ensure everyone is all on the same page. The visual representation should answer all of the important questions, such as “what do we need to do next?”, “what is currently being done?”, and so forth. 

Define Everybody's Roles

Before you start allocating tasks you must define what everyone’s responsibilities are. It’s vital for everybody to know what they are supposed to do and how they work will impact the process and the bigger picture. This helps us to unify our team members with a common goal and improves responsibility and accountability. 

Do the Hard Tasks First

It’s natural to feel anxious when dealing with the tough tasks in life. Usually, we tiptoe around the tough ones by doing the easiest things. But if we deal with difficult tasks at the very beginning, it improves our motivation and the rest of the task is a breeze! 

Do One Task at a Time

The topic of handling multiple projects at once is something that is constantly thrown at people as a test of their abilities. But rather than actually doing everything at once, where anyone is spreading themselves too thin, breaking bigger tasks into smaller subtasks and completing them one by one will increase your motivation and allow you to give your complete attention to that one component. This will help people when they are not working in a team, or need to work remotely.


Managing any task involves a lot of work. Having a good filing system is pivotal to ensuring that the project stays on course. Any marketing company will understand that organization is not just about having a place for every document, but about having a great filing system so items are easily accessible, which saves time and effort.
