Question: I have too much to do. I can’t get it done. It feels like I will never catch up to all the things I need to do.
Higgins: If there is nothing you can do to solve this today then relax about where you are. Where you are is feeling as though you will never catch up. Relax with that. Come to peace with that. Once you have relaxed in the realization that you cannot solve the problem today you are ready for solutions. Break the problem down into smaller parts. Don’t try to solve it entirely in one day. Instead, do today what must be done and what can easily be done. Then look for patterns in your own behavior that create too much to do. A little at a time let go those habits. At the same time, ask for solutions to the current tasks at hand. They will come. You will develop new good habits thus fewer tasks will be created for you to do.
A system for getting things done is to make a list of all the things you need to do. Do those that must be done. Allow the Universe to solve the rest. In this process, solutions will come to mind more easily and in some instances others will miraculously accomplish tasks for you.
