((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

You may find yourself feeling burdened; you have a great deal to do, maybe not as much time as you would like to accomplish the tasks at hand, and you do not know where to start. What to do???? Take a good look at the card above; her bundle is well-organized and ready for travel. She may feel the weight but it is not stopping her from moving forward; she had a plan before she started.

STEP ONE: GET ORGANIZED!!

Take a quick inventory; are all the task actually your responsibility? How many of them should be (or could be) handled by others? Co-workers? Spouses? Amazon delivery drivers? 

STEP TWO: DELEGATE!

An offer to assist should not have been allowed to turn into an assumption of responsibility; any tasks that are not actually your own should be immediately returned to the rightful party. If you feel you are “letting down” anyone, apologize and renew your offer to assist while the rightful owner takes the lead.

STEP THREE: PRIORITIZE

For the tasks that remain, organize them by priority and time sensitivity. BE HONEST: not every task is the highest priority of right now. Assess them accurately, create realistic deadlines, and get moving.

There will always be too much to do; decide for yourself the very best ways to get them done.
