A lack of organizational skills, procrastination and things of that nature can also lead to a feeling of overwork though, too.If you feel you are overworked, consider speaking with people who do your job in different companies or industries to see if they're experiencing the same thing. It could be a function of your job or it could be your company specifically.Honestly look at how you work and try to figure out if you can do things more efficiently.
Ask yourself if you have a problem saying "no" when co-workers ask you to do things for them if you take on more work than you can handle. Engage the help of others if possible especially in team or project settings.Look for ways to improve your organizational skills, too.

You can waste a lot of time socializing and in meetings that run too long or that shouldn't occur in the first place.
