How Do You Manage Overwhelm?

Do you ever find yourself in a sea of overwhelm?

You know those times when you’ve just got so many things to do and your to-do list just keeps getting longer and longer … for every item that you cross off your to-do list you’re adding another 3, 4 … maybe even half a dozen things to your list.

There’s so much to do and everything needs to be done NOW … you don’t know what to do first and it’s taking its toll on you emotionally (and often, physically too).

This is something that I’ve experienced but it’s also something that I’ve helped a lot of my clients to deal with as well.

In this week’s video I share my strategies to overcome this.

Enjoy!

Why You Must Set Clear Boundaries In Your Business

As a business-owner, have you ever found yourself feeling a little resentful because you’re working on a client’s project at a time when you had planned to spend with your family?

Or agreeing to a meeting or a coffee with someone and then wishing you had said ‘no’?

Perhaps you have clients visiting your home – or even friends calling in while you’re working – and you feel uncomfortable with the situation.

These sorts of scenarios, or something similar, are quite common for a lot of people and can sometimes be the cause of a whole lot of stress.

In this video I share my thoughts on why it’s so important for your customers, your team, your family and friends and for YOU that you have clear boundaries in place.

Go ahead and watch this video below now:

Then make sure you set aside some time this week to detail what boundaries you need to start implementing.

In the comments below I’d love to hear what boundaries you’ve set in your business or strategies you might have to help you to stick to them.

 

The Importance Of Tennis Balls In Your Business

What do tennis balls have to do with business management?

Lots, actually.

If I was to throw a tennis ball to you right now, do you think you could catch it?

Most likely you would.

What if I was to throw a whole bucket full of tennis balls to you?

How many would you catch then? (It’s not as easy as you may think!)

In the video below I discuss this topic in more detail and explain exactly how this relates to business management:

If you’re just starting your small business, this is a valuable point to keep in mind.

Or if you’re a more advanced business owner and not using this strategy, try it out. I’m sure you’ll find your productivity and results improve when you do.
