If you're feeling overwhelmed right now (like me) with all you have to do to get where you want to go, it's time to stop, take a deep breath and have a one-on-one with yourself. Without a road map or a GPS you are never going to get anywhere, so decide where you want to go and get directions. Here's what I'm going to do first thing this morning:
*Dig out everything I need to do and make a general task list. (I feel better already!) This takes the hidden stress that makes you feel so miserable and puts it on a piece of paper (or my iPhone list) so you can see the tasks and begin to tackle them in order of importance.
*I make two lists: one for my day job (chores and errands) and one for my writing career (the work I like to do).
Now I'm ready with my road map in hand. I'm looking forward to the trip now, because I know that by putting action to my goals I will succeed. Anyone can do this. Just decide to. Best of luck to all of you!
