Get off the wheel
When you’re overwhelmed, first reconsider the situation. What is my expectation? What do I keep telling myself that keeps me stuck? What can I get rid of? What’s missing? Then readjust. Let people know what’s up; they’ll probably want to help. Take time out to organize. Do one thing at a time. Focus on what you’re doing, not what isn’t done. Track your accomplishments and let others know.
