Growing workload

Lately my workload has been growing instead of getting smaller. For every assignment or task that is completed, there will be 2-3 added. I'm starting to get frustrated. I always feel like I'm behind. I know how to multitask, but things are getting out of hand. My schedule is always full. I barely have enough time to drink my coffee before it gets cold. I stay after hours almost everyday. The job is starting to drain me. Does anyone have any advice for me?

Maybe these are signs that you need to look for other positions either at the present job or another job. However before and of that can transpire learn to relax, relate, release and realize that nothing is permanent. If you dont like what you are reaping, change what you are sowing. Maybe you should go on a trip without your spouse,and go to the football or basketball games, to get a change of scenery.

They are treating you like you are a social worker. You dont have to take that! You feel that you are carrying your family on your shoulders, but you have to give it to God and pray in agreement with your wife to find a new position. Maybe less money, longer travel times, but a direct position. You are already staying later than you would if you worked at the other job.

likewise here... i felt so totally drained that it hits my brain like a wild fire in the forest. LOL my boss keeps on giving me a hard time on multitasking. from weekly to monthly reports, ordering office materials through phone calls, making payrolls and cash advances, encoding files, filing receipts and etc... ohhhhhhhhh! really a tiresome job!
