1. Stay organized
You know when your event deadline is, and time is always of the essence. Don’t put added stress on you or your team by waiting until the last minute to do things. Don't get distracted by things that aren't imperative (scanning Facebook and Instagram to find out what 500 of your closest friends had for dinner last night or posting yet another gym selfie can wait until after work).
Keep a to-do list (most important items on top). If you need to, plant some multi-colored sticky notes in your direct line of vision so the task is staring you down until it’s done.
Organize your workspace for maximum efficiency. By the end of a long week, everyone’s desk can get a little crazy. Just a little bit of tidying up by organizing/recycling old papers can really be helpful when starting the next task or project.
2. Ask for help
If there are items that you can delegate, do. If you need help in order to get the job done on time and right, trust that others on your team are talented and qualified enough to help you out.
3. Be Patient
There is a 'light at the end of the tunnel'! The satisfaction of knowing you did a good job will make your blood sweat and tears worth the effort.
4. Don't take mistakes personal
There really is no point in crying over spilled milk. Placing blame or pointing fingers will just add heat to the fire, so suck it up and keep moving forward. Handle whatever happened with as much professional grace and honesty as possible, and people will respect you that much more for it.
5. Unplug when you can
Having a strong work and life balance is critical to maintaining sanity. Make sure your “you” time is taken advantage of. You’ll come back to work refreshed and with a clear mind.
