Complex projects are often made up of a number of smaller projects, under an overall umbrella objective. At other times, the goal may not be clearly defined so you have to work out the steps and deliverables as you go along.
Project management can be stressful, but by prioritizing tasks, setting realistic expectations, building a support system, and practicing self-care, project managers can manage stress effectively. Prioritizing tasks and focusing on the most important ones first, setting realistic expectations, building a support system, including a mentor or therapist, regular exercise and meditation can all help to relieve stress and maintain a healthy work-life balance. By implementing these strategies project managers can not only survive but also thrive in a stressful work environment.
