One Simple Trick to Minimize Overwhelm

I want to go over just a little quick nugget with you. Something that I’ve found that really helps me. I don’t know if any of you out there have ever felt overwhelmed, but I’m sure if you own your own business, you know exactly what I’m talking about, right?

That overwhelm is just so crippling and prevents you from doing the things you need to do and almost drives you nuts until you can’t take it anymore.

Been there? I have.

Here’s what I do. It’s a simple trick; very easy.

 

One Simple Trick to Minimize Overwhelm

 

 

All I do is I go and write down everything that I need to do.

 

What happens is:

  1. I get it out of my brain so I don’t have to think about it anymore. I get it out of my brain and onto paper, my brain feels lighter and it feels a lot better getting it out of my brain.
  2. What it does is I’m able to see everything that I have to do. Normally, when I look at that list, it’s not as bad as I was making it out to be.

When I get it out of my brain, I don’t have to think about the stuff any more. You know, like laying awake at night thinking about the thing that you need to do or else a client doesn’t cancel on you, right? Those types of things.

When you get it all out, you’re able to (obviously) see that it’s not that big of a deal, but you’re also able to segment everything up into sections:

  • High priority
  • Low priority
  • Medium priority

This allows you to do the things you know you need to do and in what order. It makes me feel a lot better and eliminates that overwhelm.

I hope this tip is going to help you.
