I’ve shown this representation of what I call The Worst Problem in the World at many seminars. I wrote about it about five years ago. Now you can see the video. Watch all the way through to see some solutions. Take my course if you want to get beyond it and resolve it in your life, mainly by doing the exercises in it to develop compassion and empathy.
I wrote a few years ago about the Samurai Walk, a great way to plan and achieve goals. I recommend reading that post. It’s visual, so I did a video on it recently. Once you get it, I predict you’ll use it, and I bet you’ll find yourself getting more done with less effort, remaining more calm.
