Being Overwhelmed Wastes Energy

The inaction and frustration that comes from feeling overwhelmed wastes energy and doesn’t shrink your growing todo list.  That’s why making progress on the important action items is so key — it’s essential that you build some momentum, just take a bite-sized chunk out of your list instead of fearing the enormity of the list.  I find it very satisfying to knock off some of the little actions to make the list seem less intimidating; but it’s important not to get stuck in the details — invest real time in the big, challenging projects on your list.  And toss things off the list that aren’t important.
