overwhelm

Raise your hand if you highlight or call out your ability to multitask on your resume?

Somewhere along the way we’ve created a system that values multitasking.

The end result?

We’ve created a culture of overwhelm.
A culture of exhaustion.
A culture of ineptitude.
A culture of burnout.

Our brains can only process ONE conscious thought at a time.

Multitasking actually slows us down.

Our chance of error increases.

Experts estimate that switching between tasks can cause a 40% loss in productivity.

What happens?

We become overwhelmed and frustrated.

We’re setting ourselves up for failure before we even get started.

As alpha females, we already set perfectionist standards on ourselves to do all the things.

Get it all done.
Take on more and more.
“I’ve got this.”
“I can do this.”

Internal expectations compounded by the overwhelm of multitasking rather than focusing on one task at a time is the perfect storm for stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.

We must set boundaries for ourselves.

We must release the so-called badge of honor for multitasking.

We must show ourselves self-compassion by changing our expectations.

If you’re bragging about how kick ass you are at multitasking, I hate to break it to you, but you’re not.

You’re human, therefore you cannot successfully multitask.

It’s that simple.
