Do you often feel overwhelmed? Overworked? Overcommitted?
There are many reasons and even more theories. I believe that, in most cases, our overcommitment tendencies are related to feeling overwhelmed and overworked. If you solve the former, you’ll feel less of the latter.
Here’s the dig:
Too often we say, “Yes,” and mean, “No.” Imagine a time when you have done this. How’d you feel? Pay attention to your gut the next time you say, “Yes,” and mean, “No.” We immediately sense it. I know I do. Intuition tells us one thing, obligation (or something else) tells us another. It’s an internal struggle.
WHY do we overcommit?
HOW TO SAY NO:
SO, what does O.O.O.P.S. mean?
Overwhelmed, Overworked, Overcommitted, Pressure and Stress. Try to avoid O.O.O.P.S. Because over-commitment is unhealthy and we don’t really need accolades that badly…do we?
If you almost said ”Yes” but truthfully said “No,” then be like Elsa…good for you for letting it go.
