Feeling overwhelmed

Do you feel overwhelmed by all that must be done? Let that feeling go right now, and start actually making progress.

Yes, absolutely, there is much to do. But you won’t get any of it done by complaining, bragging, wondering, fretting, worrying about being overwhelmed.

Achievement does not come from feeling overwhelmed. Achievement comes from action.

Two minutes of action accomplishes infinitely more than ninety minutes, or a day, or a month of feeling overwhelmed. Start with just those two minutes and go from there.

Action immediately changes your focus. Action takes you from feeling overwhelmed to being in charge.

You won’t get it perfect and you won’t get it all done right away. What your action will do, is make progress, and that’s a great feeling you can continue as long as you wish.
