Who hasn't found themselves in this situation??? I'd be hard pushed to find a passionate individual who hasn't been at some point in their career.
The need to add to that ever growing list in the hope you will continue to learn, grow and deliver as much as you possibly can in a short amount of time.
Prioritising is hard because it all needs to be done yesterday!
I could harp on about delegation and time management but we all know sometimes the best intentions often don't eliminate that feeling of overwhelm.
Instead I have 3 top tips that ignore the obvious:
1. The most obvious one, yet always the hardest to do is take a step back to breathe, review and strategize your workflow.
2. Acknowledge the time wasters. Scrolling through Facebook and checking out how old Tom Cruise is because he seems to have been around forever but not aged.
3. Get a mentor or coach - a person who is impartial, non-judgemental and helps you work to your goals/ outcome. The right conversation can help you focus and drive out overwhelm.
