Over the weekend, I ran into a friend at a coffee shop. She’s 5 months pregnant, growing her business and planning a jumbo event here in NYC.
She wanted an update from me, and I shared that I just came out of one of the most intense creative times I’ve ever had.
A time when my mind kicked up thoughts like, “Are you freakin’ serious?!?! How did you ever think you could possibly accomplish all this — this fast?!”
Maybe you can relate. You see, I knew exactly what needed to get done. The end-game was crystal clear. My deadlines were non-negotiable.
But here’s the kicker.Know the difference between urgent and important, and do what’s important first. @SPressfield Click To Tweet
The outside world didn’t know my schedule. And just because I was in a demanding creative time — that didn’t stop the rest of the world from making requests of my time and sending in new opportunities.
And that, my friend, is the reason most of us drown in overwhelm.
Because no matter how well we plan, we can’t seem to stay on top of what we want to get done and the seemingly endless demands that show up from the outside world.
But, you know what? There’s a simple fix. And, it works like a champ.
Note: simple, doesn’t mean easy. Just means you don’t need a PhD to understand it 🙂 !
It’s one of the key strategies that helped me stay focused (and sane) during that crazy intense time. And honestly, I use it on a daily basis.
