Feeling overwhelmed and disorganized when working on multiple projects is a common problem, but there are several steps you can take to bring order and focus to your work:

[1] Prioritize:  . . .

5 Steps to Stop Feeling So Overwhelmed and Feel Better


  1. Prioritize: Start by identifying which projects are the most important and urgent, and focus your attention on those first. Prioritizing your projects will help you determine which ones to tackle first, and which ones can wait.

  2. Break it down: Once you have identified your top priorities, break each project down into smaller, more manageable tasks. This will help you to stay organized and focused, and will also make it easier to track your progress.

  3. Set realistic goals: When setting goals for each project, be realistic about how much time and effort you can devote to it. Don’t try to do too much at once, or you may become overwhelmed.

  4. Create a schedule: Make a schedule that includes specific blocks of time for each project, as well as time for breaks and other important tasks. Stick to your schedule as much as possible, but be flexible enough to adjust it if necessary.

  5. Use technology: There are many tools available to help you stay organized and focused, such as project management software, time-tracking apps, and task lists. Find the ones that work best for you and use them to your advantage.

  6. Take breaks: It’s important to take breaks regularly to give your brain a rest and prevent burnout. Schedule breaks into your workday, and use them to do something relaxing or enjoyable.

  7. Stay positive: It’s easy to become overwhelmed and discouraged when you have a lot of work to do, but try to stay positive and focused on your goals. Celebrate small victories along the way, and don’t be too hard on yourself if things don’t go perfectly.

By following these tips, you can bring order, organization, and focus to your projects and feel more in control of your work.


That is good advice, but how do I get myself to actually implement it?
Implementing new habits and routines can be challenging, but there are some strategies you can use to help make them stick:

  1. Start small: Don’t try to overhaul your entire work routine all at once. Instead, start with small changes that you can realistically stick to. For example, commit to spending 15 minutes each day working on your top priority project.

  2. Make a plan: Write down your goals, and create a plan for how you will achieve them. Be specific about what you will do and when, and hold yourself accountable to your plan.

  3. Use reminders: Set reminders on your phone or computer to prompt you to work on specific projects or tasks. You can also use sticky notes or other visual cues to remind you of your goals.

  4. Get support: Tell a friend or colleague about your goals, and ask them to hold you accountable. You can also join a productivity or accountability group online to get support and encouragement from others.

  5. Celebrate progress: Celebrate your progress along the way, no matter how small. Acknowledge your successes and give yourself a pat on the back for the work you have done.

Remember, developing new habits takes time and effort, so be patient and persistent. Keep focused on your goals, and stay committed to the plan you have created for yourself. With time, you will build new habits and routines that will help you stay organized, focused, and productive.
