--Career Counselor, Educator, and Motivator
Hello Francisco: In my experience, keeping up with the work assigned to me has not been difficult. As a career counselor, I would receive assignments while working on others. I used calendars to record my personal deadline, which tended to be a week before my boss asked for them. Reasonable bosses understand how long work takes and most tend to be fair with due dates. My goal is to get it to them early so they never have to wait. I also completed smaller tasks immediately to break up the longer ones and to get them out of the way so they're not forgotten. Finally, I create a check list of all assignments and definitely use any and all free time to work and get ahead ( no Facebook, Instagram or gamming---not allowed in office settings anyway). Also, no personal calls unless emergencies. So short answer, 8 hours a day will allow you to accomplish much if well spent. Best wishes!
