You want to have the time, so you say, “Yes!”
You commit…for just this one sports season…or just this one school year…or just to get our foot in the door…
And all of these “just this ones” string together…
and you all of a sudden have a lot on your plate…
You may be feeling this right now as the new school year has kicked off.
“What have I gotten myself into?” 🤦🏼♀️
“Why did I think I could do all of this?” 😱
Thankfully, there is a way out.
When you take time to think-time, you use your whole brain to quickly and clearly help you see into the future so you can prevent overcommitment and overwhelm.
- You sketch a picture of your wild success. This sketch helps your visual, creative mind to “see” into the future better than a list or a schedule. You can see clearly the end result you want most.
- You mindmap “all the things.” Getting all of the options on paper can show you how many things you really want to do. It’s a lot! The reality often is that it is impossible to “do it all” without sacrificing something or someone that matters most. Once you see the tradeoff clearly, you realize something has to give. Now you are ready to prioritize.
3. Then, with your vision on the left and all of the options on the right, you choose the few things that align with your vision–what matters most to you.
As it turns out, getting clear on what is most important is most important.
When you have clarity on what is most important, the excess starts to show itself for what it really is–less important.
When you take time to think-time, you say “no” confidently, because when you say “no” to something, you are really saying “yes” to what you want even more.
When you live aligned with your big “yeses,” you increase your opportunity to experience that “just-right” feeling of peaceful productivity and prevent that dreaded feeling of overwhelm.
Don’t waste another season overcommitted and overwhelmed.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Simply #taketimetothinktime and leave overwhelm behind.
