Has your workload gotten so big that you’re on the edge of burnout? Or maybe you’re stretched so thin that you’re considering quitting your job, even though you once loved it.  

Feeling stressed and overwhelmed at work is a modern epidemic.

Doesn’t matter if you run your own business, you’re a freelancer or you work within a company — workloads keep expanding with no end in sight. The negative spillover effects on our health, well-being and, ironically, our productivity are massive.

Here’s what we must remember. Being overwhelmed and stretched too thin at work is 100% figureoutable.

But getting the help you need won’t happen on its own. That’s why I was eager to tackle Candace’s question about how to deal with overwhelm at work, especially when you need support from your team.

Don’t forget, bosses (or partners, co-workers) are not mindreaders. You can’t assume the people you work with know that you’re struggling. You’re also not weak or incapable because you need to make changes.

Roles and responsibilities must evolve over time. You can’t keep adding more and more to your plate, indefinitely.

In today’s episode, we’re sharing a 5-step plan to reduce overwhelm, do better work and love your job again. This is how we approach adjusting our roles here on Team Forleo and it works like magic.

If you’d like more on this topic, I heartily suggest doing a stress log, too. Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to hear from you.

Can you relate to Candace’s struggle of being stretched too thin?

Whether you work with a team or you work for yourself, what’s the most important step that you can take right now to make a change?
