As minimalist business owners, I want to help you focus on what’s important so you’re not wasting precious brain energy on unproductive effort and mental drama that doesn’t affect our bottom line, or positively affect your customers.
One of the biggest barriers to really succeeding with this is feeling overwhelmed.
It’s one of the most common problems my clients come to me with.
And it’s one of the feelings they often need the most help overcoming because when they’re in the middle of it, they don’t realize what an indulgent emotion it really is.
Overwhelm causes you to spin in circles of uncertainty, doubt and lack of confidence.
It makes you feel like you don’t have choices. Or even too many choices.
It can leave you feeling like you’re stuck in quick sand because it offers no solutions and no forward movement.
Fortunately, even in the midst of physical distancing in a pandemic, there are solutions.
You don’t have to stay stuck in overwhelm.
You can train yourself to recognize it for what it is – an emotion that tricks you into thinking it’s more comfortable than acting, and offers no useful upside – and learn to think more productive thoughts.
