Feeling overwhelmed? How to manage big projects like a pro

Are you feeling overwhelmed?

Are you starting a big project, or working on one, and you can’t see your way around all of that work?

A lot of the women I’ve been talking to recently are struggling with this.

More and more women are following their intuition and going after their dreams.

To be successful, express your potential in a book, a course, an event… you hear that everywhere. You end up always preparing another launch, working on the next big thing in your career.

This is an awesome way to work, because it keeps you constantly engaged. I personally love being challenged, constantly going for the next thing. It keeps me on my toes, and I thrive on it.

But, at the same time, there’s a fine line between staying charged, always ready, sprinting on your toes, and losing yourself in a huge pile of tasks.

It’s too easy to fall into the trap of running on the to-do treadmill, like a little mouse on his wheel. Feeling overwhelmed causes you to lose that edge of creativity. Even though you may still be driven, you will lose touch with your inner power, the one that makes your work so uniquely wonderful.

This is why today I’m going to give you some practical strategies to keep yourself organized when tackling big projects.

Some other time we’ll look at the more intuitive aspects of overwhelm, and how to overcome it in a more holistic (and permanent) way. That, however, will take practice, dedication, and a long-term commitment. For now, since I have a fair bit of experience in tackling big projects to rely on, I’m going to give you a quick-and-dirty system you can use right away.

In the comments, please tell me, when do you feel most overwhelmed? And what techniques and tricks do you use to snap out of it and keep your inner power and creativity going strong?

First and foremost, remember to be kind to yourself. Feeling overwhelmed is a mental and emotional state. As any mental and emotional state, it is entirely under your control.

Here’s that nifty little scheme I was talking about. It’s a killer system and has helped me personally a LOT. Feel free to share it with whoever you think may benefit from it!

P.S: That rolling sound you hear in the background? That’s the sound of my cat eating. He’s too greedy about food, so he eats out of a ball that he rolls around for food. Every once in a while he gets mad at it and smacks it repeatedly against the wall. He’s hilarious… and special (if you know what I mean… *wink*)
