I don’t know about you but I feel overwhelmed way more often than I would like.
Being an entrepreneur, I have a “to do” list a hundred tasks long and a lot of them never seem to get “to done”.
I have workshops to prep, clients to see, social media to post, courses to write and oh ya, teenage boys to support and cats to feed. Not to mention laundry, groceries, dishes and wait, friends and dating….
So, I have ENORMOUS pressure on me to DO, BE and ACHIEVE!
But from whom? Who is putting that pressure on?
Oh wait, that would be me.
Yes, I have to pay rent and my bills on time.
I have to be there when my clients need me.
But really, who is putting the pressure on?
Whose schedule am I on?
Yes, I have deadlines…SELF-IMPOSED!
There is no boss hovering over me, no one is going to “fire” me.
This feeling of being overwhelmed, of having so much to do, of feeling behind the 8 ball, that is all on me.
We put so much pressure on ourselves.
We want to climb the mountain before the little hill right in front of us.
We want to run before we can walk.
We want to have the end result before doing the work.
Ahhhh, THAT is it.
I am so focused on the end result that moving towards it feels to slow.
It is not fast enough.
I forget that the end result is YEARS down the road.
There are many pieces to my puzzle and it is my job to put one in place at a time…IN MY TIME!
One foot in front of the other.
One task at a time.
One word at a time.
One client at a time.
One day at a time.
