Problems Appearing Bigger Than They Actually Are

writing with pen and paper



If you have a growing mass of problems to solve and they’re stressing you out, sit down with a piece of paper, a pen, a phone and a cup of tea.

Problems are like shadows, often appearing bigger than they actually are when they’re rolling around in your head.

Start by writing down what you consider are the biggest issues you need to deal with right now and draw an encompassing circle around them. Move on through the other problems and do the same, listing them all as they fall from your fingers and include tiny irritating ones, like, ‘Remember to pay the milkman or he’ll stop delivering!’

They do need your attention but when you look at them in black and white, you’ll see some of them are easy little tasks that you can take on, then put big, fat red ticks through once you’ve completed them.

With a comprehensive list on paper, you can go about prioritizing them. You may find that once you’ve done the most daunting task, it will lead to another simple task and so on. Write numbers in the boxes and draw a line from 1 to 2, then 2 to 3 and join up as many as you feel you can tackle in the first instance.

Accomplishment will spur you on to addressing the next item on the list but remember, slowly and surely does it and not necessarily on your own, that’s what friends are for.
