Competing priorities and demands on our time make us feel overwhelmed and unsure of a clear path of action. You become paralyzed. What to do first? The “to do” list grows longer and urgency to complete it grows.
The more you try and rush thru it all, the worse things feel. Molehills become mountains. Reactivity to everything shows up because you are just trying to power through. Or, you simply quit trying.
What if there was a different way? The fastest way to move forward is counter-intuitive. You need to stop and think….what is the most important thing that NEEDS to be done? What is the right thing for my organization? For me? My team?
Once you have gotten clear on what truly matters, then you can go to the next step…taking action.
Don’t confuse activity with productivity.
