Overwhelm is a huge struggle that I’m seeing so many people deal with lately—and for good reason. We’re running our businesses, caring for our children, homeschooling or supporting distance learning, adapting to new marketing needs and business models, worrying about family and friends, uncertain of the future, and so much more. That’s why today I’ll be unpacking some hard facts about why we cause ourselves to struggle more than necessary and how we can cut that struggle short.

As this pandemic evolves, we’re seeing so many changes happening rapidly and we are trying to keep track, adapt, and move with it while staying positive—but a lot of the pressure we put on ourselves is too much. Listen in as I discuss the role that we have in our own struggle, as well as how decision-making is a huge player in all of this. You will learn a few important questions that will help you make decisions faster and become more confident in those decisions.

In this episode, we cover topics such as:

  • What is causing us to struggle more than ever.
  • How to improve your decision-making skills.
  • Questions to ask that will help you be more confident in making decisions.
  • Understanding your personality and how you tend to make decisions.
  • Being willing to make wrong decisions and learn from it.
