Yes, you may not have enough hours in a day.
Yes, you may have too many deadlines.
Yes, you may have too much work.

But, if you are telling yourselves

I do not have enough time.
I have too many deadlines.
I have too much work.

You will not see the pockets of time you do have.
You will not see a way around the deadlines.
You will not see a more efficient way of getting your work done.

You shut yourselves down from making changes because your brain does not see a solution.

This creates stress.
This creates overwhelm.
This creates burnout.

Instead of shutting your brains down, what if you were to open yourself up to the world of possibilities?

What if you go through your day to find pockets of time?

  • What can I delegate?
  • What can I say no to?

What if you review your deadlines?

  • Are you trying to over-deliver a product to a client?
  • Are you overloading your calendar with deadlines imposed by you?
  • Can some of these deadlines be adjusted?

What if you decide not to continue thinking “I have too much work”?

  • This is a thought that does not serve you.
  • It does not motivate or inspire.
  • Even if you believe it is true, how does this thought help you clear obstacles? It does not. It just keeps you stuck.

Do not make things harder. When you are stuck, ask yourself, “What if?”

This will open your brain to the possibility of changing things, and reducing stress and overwhelm.

Eventually, avoiding burnout and making your career more sustainable.
