Online Discussion — “Are You Overwhelmed at Work” (Globe and Mail)

March 23, 2012

Further to may earlier post about an upcoming Webinar on handling overwhelm next Tuesday, the Globe and Mail is also getting on board with this hot topic. Today, at noon (ET), I’ll be answering questions and offering tips on how to deal with the stress of ‘too much to do’ in work and life.

I hope you will join me today at the Globe and Mail Careers online. Just follow this link here.

This Discussion is a follow-up to an article I wrote for Globecareers called “Take a Step Back to Tame Those Overwhelm Gremlins”.

And don’t forget next Tuesday’s Webinar (if can’t make the time, sign up anyways and access the recording anytime after).

Hope to see you there!

Webinar: Bogged Down and Overwhelmed?

February 29, 2012

UPDATE (DEC 2013):  if the topic of managing overwhelm is of interest to you – I just launched a new book called, Ease – Manage Overwhelm in Times of Crazy Busy. You can get it at most online book retailers. Read here for more!

WEBINAR: Bogged Down and Overwhelmed? Tips and Strategies to Help Cope With it All. March 27th at 12:30pm (EST) — or listen to the recording anytime if you register. Cost: Free! Courtesy of CICA/CA Source Webinars.  Register here!

Email overload? Work pressure piling up? Too many requests – not enough time? Yeah, me too.

Having too much to do in work and life seems to be the new normal. The pace and volume of work-life demands is at an unprecedented level these days.  So when the CICA invited me to do another Webinar this year and asked me to suggest the topic, I thought this would be timely. Everyone I talk to these days seem to be juggling so much on their plate and dealing with frazzle, stress and overwhelm. And I have to confess – I do too!

The CICA (CA Chartered Accountants of Canada)  has been generous and opened up registration (for free) and for all. Thank you CICA!! You don’t have to be an accountant to join in. You simply have to register here. If you can’t make March 27th at 12:30 – no worries! If you register, you can listen in to recording afterwards at your own leisue.

I will be sharing oodles of tips and strategies. Some that I’ve learned from own practice having to cope with an incredibly busy work and life. As well, I’ll be drawing on great content I’ve learned in my studies in Positive Psychology and Wellbeing. How to stay productive and on top if it all when each day gets busier and busier? How to maintain your optimism, resilience and Mojo? How to tame that darn Overwhelm Gremlin — and more!

Want to flourish — even when it’s crazy, busy? Sign up and join in!

Oh and by the way, if you are interested in some of the other CICA webinars I’ve done on ‘Giving Feedback’; “Addicted to Yes? Learn to say ‘No'”; “Beat the Worklife Blahs” then check out the archives here for recordings.

Ta Da!!!! Done…!

December 1, 2010

I’ve been meaning to get a TGIM Work-Life newsletter out for some time.  But alas, that ‘to-do’ list always had something else that had to get done first.  Well — Ta Da! I finally got it done. And guess what? The focus for this issue is battling ‘too much to do overwhelm’ — with the “Ta Da” list.

Would you like to read it?  Read the online version here.

Care to join the mailing list? There are three ways you can do so:

1) Hit the “subscribe to newsletter” button on this blog site.

2) Open the online newsletter version  and hit the button that says “Join our mailing list” on the right hand column (just under my pic and the Twitter symbol

2) Send me an email and I’ll put you on the list myself.

Ta Da! Easy….

There’s a Traffic Jam — In My Head

July 6, 2007

Well, it’s been more than I week since I last posted. It’s not that I’ve had nothing to say. Actually – I always have something (often too much) to say! But I somehow got stuck in traffic……

(photo courtesy of Flickr. See more here)

In my head that is…..ideas/thoughts/busyness/work/work/work……all converging and found myself a little stuck on what to blog about. Intellectually I have a ton of post ideas…..but the inspiration to actually write was nowhere to be found. Blank stare. Traffic jam of ideas  – but nothing to say.

Hmmm. In the spirit of ‘masterful noticing’ – I’m noticing that I might be needing a little break. My battery running on low juice.

Thankfully, I’ve had plenty of energy left for my clients….in fact, have been very inspired, energized and engaged in my work. But at the end of the day, I’ve had enough. So….no blog posts last week. I figured no point in forcing it just to write something. Sometimes you just have to surrender.

Suuurrrender……ahhhhh….I like that sound of that. Idling in traffic for just a bit and surrendering.

In fact, it is in that very spirit that I booked a week off 3rd week in July to do………nothing, nada, or whatever.

My only commitment for that week is to not commit.

More time for surrender coming up. Sigh. Feels good just to think about it.

In fact, I’m starting to feel more rested already. In fact, I think I feel an idea coming……

 Nope. False alarm.

But check back real soon cuz that urge just may happen again. I can feel it.

Just for fun today….and to a TGIM worklife,
