Although productivity gives us a sense of purpose and fulfillment, there are moments in our lives when work becomes too much for us to handle that it causes us to feel overwhelmed. When there are so many things to do but so very little time, we get into a state of overwhelm. Once this happens, ironically, nothing gets done. We jump from one task to the next hoping that at the end of the day we will be able to accomplish something. Unfortunately, when your mind is preoccupied you get easily distracted and you’ll feel anxious and confused and in then end, nothing gets done.
However, I have three proven strategies that will help you overcome the overwhelm.
Firstly, acknowledge that you are in overwhelm. Instead of running around like a madman doing one thing here and another thing there; sit down, take a long, deep breath and admit to yourself that you have a lot going on and that you have too much on your plate. You can only solve a problem when you are consciously aware that it exists.
Secondly, list the five things that you need to do immediately. Listing things down makes work more manageable. List your tasks according to priority. You can start by listing the five things that you need to do right away. But it doesn’t end there; you need to make a list of five things for each of those. Breaking them down into smaller chunks will make you feel more in control and more confident at what you do.
Thirdly, once you’ve got your list finalised, take action. Your list will serve as your guide and now that you have it, you are now all set to work. Work on those little chunks instead of focusing on the big picture. Once you start taking action, little by little, you’ll see progress that will get you closer to accomplishing your tasks.
It’s easy to slide into overwhelm if you don’t have strategies to help you focus. These three tips will surely help you get things done than you ever thought possible.
