Ever felt like for each task you accomplish, another 2 tasks come your way? It's like you're drowning with no lifeline. 🤬
That was me, 2 years ago. No matter what I did, I just kept getting more and more overwhelmed. I knew more and yet, I felt frozen. 🥶 I didn’t know where to start the change, or whether I had the time.
That’s when I decided I would move even if it was a mistake down the road, or there was no gain. 🚶♂️ It was better than staying still. 🚶♀️
With my goal in mind, I took these steps:
Did a brain dump! 🧠 To save my brain from remembering everything – I made a list of all the things I wanted to do and jot them down. ✍
I looked at what my non-negotiables were (i.e. your big rocks)🥇 I looked at what parts of my life did I have to have? 🥋🏋️♂️💆♀️👨👩👧👦👫 I slotted those into my schedule first. This ensured I had the necessary things in my day to unwind.
Put in deadlines for work⏱ Here’s the kicker. Set deadlines for when I wanted to start and end work each day. One of the reasons we don’t feel like we have enough time we procrastinate thinking “I can do it later”. 💁♂️💁♀️ Then before you know it, it’s bed time. ⏳
The rest is up for debate 🎉 Here is where I could be spontaneous if I wanted. Either I add in the lower priority tasks to the rest of my schedule or I could just breeze through them in whatever order throughout the week.
These things can be tricky, but they are not impossible.
