How to Deal with Overwhelm

As an entrepreneur, it is very common to feel overwhelmed. Especially when you’re just starting out. Over the years, I’ve figured out how to deal with overwhelm so that you keep moving forward and growing. One of the best things you can do is to plan out a dream day and get everything out there so you can see what you need to work on. You may find out that you need to hire help, be more organized, or only take on the things that you’re good at. Here are my top tips…


Realize that it’s a good thing that you feel overwhelmed. It means that you are actually trying to do something beyond your comfort zone. You’re growing yourself to the next level as an entrepreneur.


Give yourself an open day to write down everything you have going on. What are all the tasks and projects that you have to do on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis? Get it all out of your head and onto paper. Get a bird’s eye view: What projects do you have going on? What are the steps that you need to take to complete them? What is the level of priority for each project? Get everything untangled and organized in this step. 


Get honest with yourself and see if you are actually trying to do too much. If the answer is yes, examine what you can simplify and cut out. Seriously consider if you need people to come on board to help and who those people need to be.
