If the pressure of writing your next speech is weighing you down right now
And you’re feeling a bit more vulnerable than usual
This strategy will be a big help:
1. Consider the situation as a test and not a threat
Allow yourself to think neutrally
Assess the facts of your situation
Get clarity on what is really happening
2. Find your natural flow
Take a timeout in a quiet space if possible
Release some tension by breathing calmly
Repeat this until you feel your natural flow
3. Do one tiny goal
What is the smallest step that needs to be done?
Put your focus on that step and only that step
Get it done and then celebrate the moment.
There’s a fine line between challenge and overload
Give yourself a break and take a timeout
You’ve earned it!
Now go get that speech completed.
How do you deal with work overload?
