“I’m so overwhelmed – I just don’t know where to start!”  This is one of the top complaints I hear from clients. Their plate is so full it’s overflowing!

Sometimes they are overwhelmed by too many activities, deadlines, and obligations.  Sometimes they are overwhelmed as a result of some ADHD challenges.  Sometimes they are overwhelmed because they have a big project due.  Sometimes they are overwhelmed by a new life circumstance (new baby, caring for an elderly parent).

There are solutions!  One of my favorite strategies is to brainstorm a list of supportive people. Creating a strong support structure is one way to help move past overwhelm.

Critical to creating a life that fits is being able to tap into a supportive network for assistance!

  • Practical help on a project
  • Encouragement to keep going
  • Accountability to stay on track
  • A sounding board to talk through your feelings
  • A guide to create a plan

Who are some of the supportive people in your life?

  • Family
  • Friends (old, new, current)
  • Neighbors
  • Local support groups
  • People you met at a conference
  • Students
  • Retired adults
  • Assistants
  • Co-workers
  • Organizers
  • Coaches
  • Therapists
  • Bookkeepers
  • Virtual Assistants
  • Physicians

How can you utilize the talents of these people?

  • Delegate some tasks
  • Use as a body double while you complete some tasks
  • Share ideas
  • Talk through challenges
  • Divide the labor on a big project or everyday tasks
