Do you ever get anxious about tasks? Do you ever think to yourself "wow this is going to take forever"? I used to have those thoughts all the time. Actually, I still get them from time to time. People at every level have them. WHAT SEPARATES THE SUCCESSFUL FROM THE AVERAGE COMES DOWN TO HOW LONG WE DWELL ON IT.
The quickest way to get past anxiety on a project is to break down the task into smaller pieces. It can really be any size, in fact the more anxiety you have the smaller the task should be. It can be as small as writing the plan down on paper. Then break it down into small steps. Then then break it down again. Then execute, step by step. The key here is to START TAKING SOME FORM OF ACTION.
What this will do is stop you from worrying about the size of the result and the difficulty, and kick start you into taking action. The anxiety starts to fade the minute you give your mind a task to focus on. When you accomplish that, move on to the next task. Then the next. After a few of those, you'll have created the momentum that will help carry you through the rest of the larger task. NEVER FOCUS ON THE SIZE OF THE MOUNTAIN FROM BASE.
The bigger the task, the more important it is to break down the steps. The smaller, the better. Allow yourself to build small wins, they become big wins when you start to stack them. String together a couple big wins, that leads to massive success. Anxiety comes from worrying about the result, which ultimately keeps you from ever achieving it. Keep your tasks small but important, and you'll slowly start to squash anxiety from ever creeping in again💪🏽
