Professionals in all walks of life experience times of overwhelm.
What does that look like for you? How does it feel? How did you get to this place? Is there any way out?
The “Right Now” Mindset
We are successful professionals because we get things done. The question here is, “Does it all have to be done “right now?”
The answer lies in setting priorities, doing first things first, and the creating the mindset of “one thing at the time.”
The feeling of overwhelm can be uncomfortable, bring on stress, and create self-doubt. What is the solution?
Realize that we all work more effectively by doing one thing at the time.
Decide the most important task, and begin there.
Enjoy the feeling of getting it done, and being free to move forward.
The feeling of empowerment brings about greater and greater accomplishments.
Questions to help diagnose your habits which contribute to overwhelm:
- Do you lack techniques in focus?
- Do you feel alone in this turmoil?
- Do you know how to see options instead of obstacles?
- Do you ask for help?
Take the leap to overcome overwhelm.
Engage a professional business/life coach who is trained in working through these issues and who is with you every step of the way.
