How do you combat that overwhelmed & paralyzed feeling?
In work, in life, I get overwhelmed by how much there is to do and how to approach it, how to budget my time, etc.
As a result, not nearly enough gets done and I get upset with myself and beat myself up about not getting anything done.
Take for example my house, we have two rooms that need to be renovated in the next month, both are a mess and still filled with boxes. Most nights after work, I go in one of the rooms, survey what has to be done, start looking in boxes and moving a few things around (spreadhing out the mess) and give up because I don't have the time and energy to deal with it.
This also happens with work projects, I never seem to be able to get in top of projects and stay ahead of the curve and be organized, I'm always saying I need a big chunk of time to just step back, assess and get organized and that time never presents itself.
I think I actually at the point where my self esteem has suffered as a result.
Do you ever feel this way? How do you break through it and get things done?
