Over The Top

Sometimes the amount of work you have to do starts getting to be over the top. There isn’t time and stress is building. As stress builds, you can lose perspective and focus while the work keeps on coming.

What can you do when work is overflowing and you don’t know how you can handle it all? Here are some ideas:

• Get yourself out of the way – step aside and look at the situation, rather than letting it control you

• Find some ways to lower your stress, right now

• Once your stress is lowered, realistically assess the situation – what is possible to get done and what is not?

• Take a break to regain focus and perspective

• And, the old standby ☺, remain fully in the present moment as you proceed.
