We've all been there. Those times when it feels like we just have too much to do. Our minds feel "cloudy" and are swirling with everything that needs to get done. We feel overwhelmed and struggle to keep up.
No matter who you are, you have had times when it seems like there is too much on your plate and you cannot get out from under it. With running multiple businesses and juggling family life and racing Ironman, I definitely feel overwhelmed at different times.
Many years ago, I learned how to deal with this and help myself to get back on track and the solution is really quite simple: Stop and write down what needs done.
It really is that easy. When you feel like you cannot keep up or remember everything you have to do, if you just keep trying to tackle it by "remembering as you go," you will find that it almost makes things worse.
Instead, stop and go to a quiet place with a notepad and spend 20-30 mins doing a brain dump of everything swirling around in your mind. Once you have cleared everything out, you will find you feel much better. Then you can go to work prioritizing and putting a to do list together to help you get everything done.
In doing this, you will find clarity and be much more productive. Use this simple technique to make a difference in your success!
