In the list of the most stressful jobs of 2012, Event Coordinator was at number 6. Just so you understand that; number 5 is Police Officer. Number 4 is Military General!
Here’s a few tips on reducing your stress while planning your event:
– Break down the event into five or six segments
– Use to-do software, app, or an on line program for reminders
– Accept that everything will not go as planned
– Do not micro-manage – delegate to a team
Be sure on the day of the event that you personally have absolutely no tasks to accomplish and let your team take the reigns (after all, you’ve communicated your needs to them right?). Don’t be a micro-manager and you’ll sleep well!
