OVERWHELMED...

 

When things get tight it seems we always are expected to do more with less...not less with less.  This can lead to that uncomfortable feeling of being overwhelmed.  While this one post won't be able to address the cause here are a couple things to help deal with the symptoms...

JUST START

The start is what stops most people.  Just pick something & accomplish it.  Whether you start with something you don't care for or something you love, just getting it checked off the list will help create some momentum.

TOUCH IT ONCE

Try not to touch anything twice.  Open that email, do what you need to do & move it on.  Don't wait until later, trust me, we all forget & hold up progress when we wait.  This is your anti-procrastination tool.  Sometimes done is better than perfect!

These 2 simple but powerful behaviors will inspire teammates...because together is better!
