Ever get overwhelmed?
September 14, 2008 8:50pm CST
I just started a new semester of classes. I signed up for the most that my college would allow so that I could graduate earlier. Now I'm sitting here surrounded by textbooks and a list of assignments that need to be completed. I work part-time out of the home and part-time in the home, and am also the parent of a toddler. I feel like I have more to do than I have time for. What do you do when you feel overwhelmed? How do you stay motivated and not get side-tracked?

First, get out of your comfort zone - your bed calling out to you does not help efficiency. This will allow you to focus better. Remove distractions like the computer, radios, TVs, hand phones, alarms, and everything. Plan out what you have to do and set time limits on them, so you can limit yourself to a certain time for each task, leaving you time left for other tasks.
