It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you are very busy. With tasks coming at you from all sides and lots to remember, your mind can work overtime trying to keep it all straight.
When I’m very busy with lots of things coming up, I rely heavily on my planner. I have discovered that planning ahead and knowing when I’m going to do each thing helps me focus on the present. Instead of having that scattered feeling and wondering how I’m going to get everything done, I have a plan and feel prepared. I can relax because I know when I will do all my tasks.
I start by time blocking my week with things that are set in my schedule.
By knowing when I am going to get everything done, I can focus on what I’m doing now. I don’t have to worry about all those other things, because I know when I will do them. This frees me to give my full attention to what I’m doing at the moment. When it’s time, I’ll focus on the next thing.
