Overwhelmed by “To-Do’s”?

Overwhelmed by “To-Do’s”?

Overwhelmed by so many To-Do’s?  It’s time to delegate to Universal Energy.

Feeling overwhelmed and paralyzed from the weight of having too much to do?  As an entrepreneur and a former HR professional, this stressful state is quite familiar to me. 

I’ve spent a lot of time pushing through and telling myself to work harder.  This strategy was never very effective though, and always left me tired, annoyed and even less productive.

When I learned about the Law of Attraction and the flow of Universal Energy, however, I began to understand what was happening during those times of overwhelm and how to tap into the productivity of Universal Energy to get more done in less time.  We can easily achieve so much more if our thoughts and energy are in alignment instead of working against each other.

The “Placemat Process” from the book, “Ask and It is Given” by Jerry and Esther Hicks – is a simple tool that will help you align your thoughts and energy, eliminate your feelings of stress and overwhelm, and significantly boost your productivity.  Follow these simple steps:

  1. At the top of a piece of paper write, “To Do.”
  2. Draw a line down the middle of the page.
  3. Write your name at the top of the left column and “Universe” at the top of the right column.
  4. In the left column, write the top 2 or 3 things that YOU must complete TODAY – things that no one else can do and that require your attention today.
  5. In the right column, list everything else that is on your regular to-do list.
  6. FOCUS on the 2 or 3 things in your column and let go of thinking about everything else. Universal Energy will take care of it.

This reimagined to-do list works for me (and others) every time.  I’ve delegated to Universal Energy everything from finding a dentist to getting an invitation to be interviewed on the radio.  I don’t know HOW Universal Energy does it, but if I stay out of the way and focus on what is most important or most exciting to me in the moment, everything else falls easily into place.

So go ahead.  Rewrite your to-do list, and let us know what awesome things Universal Energy lines up for you.
