Inspired Productivity with Metaphor Technique

Feeling overwhelmed at times? Yes, I know the feeling!

When I feel overwhelmed I use the metaphor technique. I think back to when I climbed the Matterhorn. I had to take one step at a time and persevere to reach the summit. There were places where I had to slow down to get my strength back. This technique worked and I reached the top! This memory helps me to step back and regroup so I can focus again on tasks or projects.

You can use a different metaphor, something that was physically very challenging for you such as hiking, running, biking, etc. Remember that moment, it was hard but you did it! Apply this technique when you are stressed or overwhelmed. Step back, regroup and start again. Perseverance is the key! In order to reach the goal, you have to take it step by step and slow down a little to get your strength and focus back.

Feel free and share your comments and experiences. I would love to hear from you.
