Overwhelmed again part 2 — ADD Tip o the day 157

There are two main strategies for overwhelmed:

1.  Make the big list, everything you need to do.  Make a short list, the most urgent or important.  Pick one, maybe break it into small steps.  Pick one, usually the hardest, focus on that, forget all the rest, do it.   Repeat.  If you can’t get yourself to do it, break it into smaller steps.

2.  If you are really stuck, just pick one thing at random, or the easiest.  Forget all the rest.  Break it into smaller step.  Do the easiest one, just focus on it and do it.  Then maybe  you’re ready to implement method 1, as above.

This time, when I was stuck, I used method 2 and it worked!  Yea!  That really feels better.  And the thing I picked was next days blog.  Got it done, and I was moving again.
