“There is just so much on my plate and I feel like I don't even know where to begin”.
Feeling overwhelmed by so many things that need to be done in your business might be a familiar scenario for you. Oftentimes, I see coaches become overwhelmed because they’re putting on items in their to-do lists that are meant to be a project instead of a task.
A task is a single action that takes about 15-20 minutes and can be done RIGHT away without anything else. A project, on the other hand, is something that requires more than two tasks to accomplish and may require some prep work to complete.
There are also such things that we call miscellaneous tasks that may just take less than 15 minutes, even just two minutes to complete. The best way to handle these tasks is to do them immediately.
There are things that we think are going to be bigger than others and there are things that we think are going to be much smaller than others. Really focusing on a task versus project can make a huge difference in overcoming your feeling of overwhelm.
Completing a task as soon as you can will prevent them from piling and taking up so much of your time in a day. On the other hand, if you’re working on a project, you can break the project down into doable tasks that feel manageable for you at each time - a quick win for you every time!
This discipline enables you to shift your perspective on how you feel in terms of time management and your ability to get things done in order to avoid the feeling of overwhelm and workload paralysis.
