Anyone of us can be guilty of this, and I know we want to break free. These and more, we will be talking in this episode.

Focus and try to make sure that you have dedicated time for it.   Everything begins with a schedule. You have to plan. You have to stick to the plan. If you don’t plan and there is no structure, the chance at success is hard and slim.       Follow through and implement. Sticking to the plan is one thing. Getting things performing and going is the essential part of the task because if you don’t try, you’re not going to know if you succeed or not.       Be ready to bail out. Little things like that small slight adjustments are necessary and are ready to bail on something that's really not working or not serving you, or you quickly realize may or may not be where you want to be is also very, very important.   So overall, it's important that you pay attention to what you want to achieve. Being an overachiever is not a bad thing. Being an average achiever is not a bad thing either depending on how you want to live your life. Now, take these four easy steps to avoid overwhelm and become an overachiever.   Resources Can’t Hurt Me: Master Your Mind And Defy The Odds  by David Goggins   Connect with Gregory Paul veracitygp.com Twitter Instagram Pitching the Truth Podcast
