Attorneys often get stuck in a sense of overwhelm. Overwhelm occurs when you feel like there is just too much to do and not enough time in the day to get it done. Sound familiar? Often, when we’re experiencing overwhelm, rather than tackling something, we opt for tackling nothing. Rationale: “I just don’t have the time to get anything done.” Stop thinking like that!
Rather than thinking, “I just don’t have the time to get anything done.” Ask yourself this question: “What is the one thing I can do right now that is the most valuable and productive use of my time?” Answer the question; then act on the answer. You don’t need to finish the task, just start. There is power in momentum.
