Feeling overwhelmed, like a hamster on a wheel?
Half-finished stories and books piling up in your desk drawers?
Does your mind sometimes feel like an overstuffed taco?
If you need more focus and control in your life...
Help is here!
If you're a writer, no doubt you have a number of stories, half-finished books and writing projects languishing in boxes in the back of your closet, or buried under the bills and correspondence in your desk drawers.
Where do we go wrong?
Unfortunately, most of us make the mistake of taking on too many projects at once. Like that novel that ran into the “muddy middle” two years ago and still nags at us occasionally, or the book of short stories that’s waiting to be edited. And let’s not forget that Grandma isn’t going to last forever, so that family history that we promised to write has to be finished, or at least researched, soon.
Not to mention all the other projects, large and small, that come with simply being alive. Housework, relationships, vacations, careers, kids, and so on and so on. It never ends!
The result is that we wind up with our minds constantly in a state of mild panic, wondering how we’re going to get all this stuff done. And that can result in poor self-esteem, a compromised immune system, chronic stress, obesity, addiction, even illness and death.
(Okay, WHEW! Breathe...)
The reason we feel this way is because, over time, we’ve accumulated an overabundance of open loops — unfinished projects that keep tugging at our subconscious, begging for closure. But the result of overwhelm is even more procrastination, which only makes the problem worse.
Trust me, I’ve been there. Years ago, I sat down with a pen and paper, thinking I had three or four main projects. By the time I’d worked everything out, it turned out I had forty-three projects and sub-projects. No wonder I was overwhelmed!
I'm a "recovering" artist, writer and writing coach, and I want to share with you the process that helped me gain control of my own overwhelm and learn to stop procrastinating, or at least, use my procrastination intentionally.
All those years ago, when I discovered the reasons why I was so overwhelmed and out of control, I came up with a way to get past the procrastination, avoidance and outright fear that was stopping me from achieving my goals. The experience of working through all that gave me the foundation for my Overcoming Overwhelm and Procrastination method, a logical, three-step process that creates order out of mental chaos and lets me define the exact structure of any project, large or small, an easy-to-use organization and project management system I use to this day.
And you can do it too!
The process itself is quite simple and I can show it to you in three basic steps. When you have complete control over which project to work on next, and which action is the best next step to take, your brain fog, panic, guilt and avoidance will all disappear. It’s the fastest, most effective way to beat procrastination, clear your mind and organize your projects so that you’ll always know exactly which step to take and in which order, freeing up your mental resources, leaving you energized and ready to take on any new project.
Here's what some of my students had to say...
I have given in to this feeling (of procrastination) for about 6 years and have so much work that I've given up on far too soon. And I have definitely been trying to get back to my comfort zone. I'm going to fight against this! I'll get this story out of my head and onto paper and then think about actually crafting a novel! Looking forward to starting! Thank you! Thank you so much! I've got this!
It feels like you created this course just for me. Thank you! Simple and easy to follow and for the first time, I know just what I need to do.
I have been working on three books at once, and getting nowhere with any of them. This course helped me to focus and now I have one ready to publish. Wow! I can't believe I actually finished it! For the first time in a long time, I have a real sense of accomplishment.
