Are you overwhelmed just thinking about all you have to do? Holding back wont get you anywhere. Stop needing to do it all and start by getting off your buttocks and getting it done.

Good Morning Everybody ...

I'm taking a break from myself this morning because I need a little distance. But I have a lot to say. Well ... I often have too much to say lol.

I actually have a lot to do and I'm procrastinating a little because I love writing. It kind of sets things straight for me. Maps things out and clears the clutter.

Here's my morning chronicle ...

Are you overwhelmed just thinking about all you have to do?

You make a list and the list gets so long and distinguished, it almost feels like a finger marathon lol and you get tired just looking at it. Right? lol

The fact is though, that when you make a list of things you need to do, you're more likely to get it done. It's also a great motivator because you get to scratch thing off and see your progress.

Don't stop there!

Holding back wont get you anywhere. Stop needing to do it all and start by getting off your buttocks and getting it done.

Ok, the first step at dealing with being overwhelmed is by not focusing on how overwhelmed you are and then by emphasizing how overwhelmed you feel.

Boot camp moment.

ATTENTION! When you want something, you have to get out of your way and jump in!

Stop ... Stop ... Stop ... you can't go on telling yourself you'll never get it all done either because when you do ... reality has it that you either stop. I heard you! Don't deny it! Or was that me? lol

Stop thinking about all that is left to be done and start paying attention to what you are doing right here, right now. One thing at a time!

Seriously? It's not a bad thing to be busy. Be grateful and accept the blessing and get going on your first task, and then the next ... and then the next.

There's a stream of opportunities to make a difference. Keep busy but please remember that your goal isn't to simply be busy but to accomplish something of value with your valuable time and effort.

When there's so much to be done, pick the one that is most important and get busy. If something is important enough to invest your precious time in, then it's important enough to invest your commitment, attention and enthusiasm into it as well. That thumb rule is applicable to all aspects of life.

The point is not to be constantly busy being busy. Get everything you can from each moment by putting in everything you have.

Don't just work .... Achieve! Don't just exist ... Live!

Well my friends ... I want to wish you all a fawbewlous day! <notice the accent?> lol Be good to one another and don't take your freedom for granted because it's not a given for everyone to do so.

And one more thing ....

SMILE! ... You're on life's candid camera!
