When you address a challenge from a space of positive motivation, you start formulating the right questions, giving the space for answers and solutions to reveal themselves.
Here is a process you can use when you become overwhelmed by too many questions:
Before getting started, give yourself permission not to have all of the answers in advance and say out loud that you are OK with it.
2- Write down your questions
Take a piece of paper and write down all of the questions that are overwhelming you at the moment. Don't be afraid of the long list for now.
Circle or highlight the ones that need most attention and give them priority numbers.
4- Transmute the drama
Notice the ones that carry 'drama' and try reformulating them in a more neutral way (without focusing on the emotional pain).
5- Gain space by scheduling
Looking at the high priority ones, set a time until when these need to be resolved (this will allow you to gain more space as you realize that not everything needs your attention right away).
6- Smart questioning
For each of the first 3 questions, ask yourself the following:
- How can I make the best of this situation?
- What are 5 options I could use resolve it?
- How can get support for it (a friend, book, mentor...)?
The good news is that not all questions need to be answered to right now.
