Overwhelmed by the gap

Lynne Cazaly

When the gap is too big between where I am and where I’d like to be, it can seem insurmountable, uncrossable, impossible. It’s a huge step towards a big goal. After all, we’ve been told to ‘dream big’ haven’t we. While we know every journey begins with a single step, it can look more like a leap or pole vault from where we are.

Where does your overload come from? - A day of back to back meetings - A new project - The to do list - Working from home - Dealing with uncertainty and stress. All of these things can bring on a state of overload and overwhelm.
