View Full Version : Too Much

I dont know whether to $&!+ or wind my wristwatch.
I give up!
There's too much information
too many requests, demands, questions
from customers, boss, family.
Too many people to talk to
projects to manage
budgets to track
Its all becoming a blur - priorities are a joke
GTD is another another item on a list that is way way too long...
Mind like water? I'm a pool in a rainstorm
I forgot what my question is... I gotta go!

Say YES! - but only for the most important stuff. I mean really the most important stuff.

or... say yes to everything but just don't do them.
Then you'll get a reputation as being unreliable and no one will ever ask you to do anything ever again! :)

I give up! There's too much information too many requests, demands, questionsIt helped me to realize that I was not going to get everything done that needed to be done. Those that do, do not have very complete lists.
List the items, negotiate the trade-offs. The consequences will be there - no way around it.

I look at my lists and wonder how the heck I'm ever going to get all of this stuff done.
When I feel overwhelmed like this, I look at all of my NA lists and move all the stuff off that doesn't absolutely positively have to get done this week. It all gets parked in the Someday/Maybe list, which I will go over at the next weekly review.
One of the biggest things I've noticed is all the commitments I've made to myself. Sometimes I just put way too many demands on my own time. Things like, read this interesting magazine or learn a foreign language, etc. Things I would like to do someday, but when you are overwhelmed, just move it off your list and stop feeling stressed out about it.
