Lately, I’ve experienced feelings of stress by the simplest of tasks.
The tasks that are routine and ordered. The tasks that have a tick the box kind of completion, tasks that involve routine business processes and paperwork.
I leave these tasks to the very last minute to the point that months pass and I realize, yikes, I haven’t even started let alone completed the task.
Enter … overwhelm!
How did this happen? It was so simple!
All I had to do was … one, blah blah blah; two, blah, blah, blah, and so on. By the time I get through self-recrimination, I have a monstrous headache and am back to where I started. With a pile of simple tasks turned into ginormous piles of paper and to do’s.
Enter … denial.
“Where does the time go?!”, I ask myself.
Now that I’m past the recriminations, I got down to the essence of what needed to be done. Suffice it to say, I pulled myself out of panic and discovered the solution was simple and took all of five minutes to complete.
Now I feel like a complete idiot!
