I’m drowning in work!

“I’m drowning in work!”

“I’m underwater!”

“I’m barely hanging on!”

“I’m sorry, but I just can’t do it!”

“That’s impossible!”

“I don’t have time to go to the bathroom, much less XYZ!”

Negativity is contagious these days. Many people feel burned out and hopeless. Should you succumb to this line of thinking, just because your colleagues gripe and moan?

No! You actually have far more time than you realize. Write down your goals, your weaknesses, and a plan to address the root causes of those weaknesses. Be grittier. Don’t let yourself get sidetracked. Spend the weekend tidying your home from top to bottom. Stop procrastinating. Use technology more mindfully. Unplug your television for a week. Get rid of your old computer. Scrape together the money and buy a new MacBook Air, 13.3 inch. Clean your email. Organize the files on your computer, in your office.

Sing. Dance. Laugh. Lead a parade.

Let go of the complacency and denial. Get out of your comfort zone. Walk to work. Run to work. Bike to work. Take a vacation. Study a new language. Start swimming at 5 AM. Hire a productivity coach. Go to a therapist. Start a blog. Write a book. Make mistakes and enjoy learning from them. Become mindful of your fixed, false emotions and longstanding habits of thinking. Think differently than everyone else. Be positive. Pursue truth. You can change. And be sure to find a way to achieve your dreams.
