TTTV069: 6 Steps to Beating Overwhelm

beating overwhelm


Do you ever feel like there’s just too much information these days? It can be difficult to know where to put your focus when life, work and the internet seems to pull you in every direction.

Beating overwhelm means knowing where to put your focus and attention. You can’t possibly consume all that content – and you shouldn’t try.

When you know what you’re trying to achieve , set very clear goals for yourself, and  hold yourself accountable for achieving them – you’re that much closer to beating overwhelm. You need to cut through the fluff and work out why you’re doing what you’re doing.

In today’s solo show I’m giving you 6 steps to follow if you’re feeling the information overload. If one of your goals is to achieve a better work-life balance these tips could help you along the way.

Thank you for Tuning In!

There are a lot of podcasts you could be tuning into today, and I’m grateful that you’ve chosen mine.

Being a full-time teacher myself, I know how busy teachers are and how much time, effort and passion we put into our students. Sometimes, the last thing we want to do in our time off is listen to more piano teaching stuff! So, well done for using this time for self-improvement.

Whether you’re at the gym, on the bike or in the car, I know that you and your students will get lots out of what you learn in the long run. Just make sure you try out some of the ideas before they get lost in the business of your next lessons.
