Time management reduces stress
In today's episode, Mattias talks about how it is a choice if you let things stress you - or not and how he personally avoids becoming stressed.
Being stressed vs. Being under pressure
Firstly, Mattias explains that he generally isn't a stressful person - rather the opposite. His nature is more calm and steady.
He also illustrates that there's a difference between being stressed out and being under pressure for him. Being stressed out is obviously a negative form of stress while being under the right amount of pressure can be a positive thing that has the power to motivate you.
Avoiding stress by planning
Something that could cause him to be stressed out is when he is not properly managing his time. Whenever he is not planning out his week well, he often ends up thinking about all the things he didn't manage to do. He doesn't get stressed as long as he plans his weeks and determines his top two priorities for each day.
Of course, if he's looking for things to worry about, he will always find something. That's why Mattias believes that being stressed or not is also a choice. Building a business, there will be tons of things that you will not have done when you go home at the end of the day. It's important to be kind to yourself and simply do your best - if you do that, there's nothing more you could do.
Delegation reduces stress
When it comes to leadership, there's one thing that has the potential to stress Mattias: when people don't deliver what they promised. A key to reducing stress within leadership is to delegate tasks. This is why Mattias needs to know that he can rely on his people and their work.
