We all get overwhelmed from time-to-time and that anxiety is often associated with what we consider “work.” The right mindset serves as a potential remedy. The key is looking at each task through a different lens.
As Co-Founder at Spiracle Media, I’m immersed in a number of areas. Some of which include company growth, partner relationships, team management and marketing. Feeling overwhelmed is easily achieved. Discipline and mindset are two areas of my personal development that I continue to focus on.
One simple tweak that has made a significant difference is treating the overwhelming body of work as one opportunity after another. Treating work like work deprives us not only of our energy, but also affects our attitude and joy. To the contrary, an opportunistic mindset allows us to see even the most medial tasks as holding positive potential. This leads to renewed focus and energy.
It’s difficult to stick to this mindset on the consistent basis. It takes a lot of discipline and practice. Segmenting your time to focus on specific tasks is one way to start. This allows you to find value by isolating each activity and presents an opportunity to learn, collaborate, share, create or grow a relationship.
Everything holds positive potential! Start treating it that way and work no longer feels like work. You’ll immediately feel a difference in the stress and enjoyment department.
