How do I know it's time for a review?
- I have lots of things that have to get done. (Seriously, who doesn't?)
- I don't know what the hell to do right now.
- I can tell you lots of things I should be doing but am not.
- I can't bring myself to do any of them because I'm terrified that I'm not doing something more important.
Yep. Time for a full review. I don't care if it takes two hours. I have to get my house in order before taking any action.
First step: Do a brain dump.
Second step: Go through my task manager.
Third step: Go through email.
Fourth step: Go through all my inboxes.
Fifth step: Review my long-term and then my short-term goals.
Once I have it all written out to see with my eyes (as opposed to scattered in my brain) I can get to work on some of the small, simple tasks without worrying that I'm going to forget to do something else. Brain overload is about to come to an end!
