Overwhelmed - For that overwhelmed feeling, remember to line your tasks and projects up one by one. Once your tasks and projects are lined up in a sequential order that makes sense given your deadlines, break them down into logical steps. Next, identify the first step: an instant start-up task. An instant start up task is something that will only take you 3-5 minutes. Once you dive into a small 3-5 minutes task, you will become so engaged that moving through the next, longer two and sometime three steps is child's play.
Resistance to Authority - Getting even with a manager by turning in work later than requested or expected never works. It sabotages you! Face it - no one likes being told what to do because as freedom seeking beings we value our autonomy. A pretty normal human reaction to authority is to rebel much like the child in school who resists what parents, teachers and principals tell them to do.As an adult in the workplace we can see this resistance to authority as it is: childish. Exercise your autonomy: Make a conscious choice to do the work, finish on time and produce excellent quality. This will earn respect.
Victim Syndrome - Victimhood will never be a productive state to work in. Thinking you are a victim slows your mental acuity and destroys your decision making ability. To eliminate victimhood, use the technique that works for resistance to authority. Say to yourself, "I choose to do this!" Watch the difference it makes in your energy level, your attitude, and your resolve to finish.
Perfectionism - Those who have the mindset that every single phrase, word, and formatting decision must be perfect are often frozen into procrastination by their perfectionism. They resist starting because trying to make every single detail perfect gives them burnout. Accept the fact that you are human and will make errors and misjudgements. These can be fixed when they are pointed out. Remember that those who aim for excellence produce exceptional work while those who aim for absolute perfection become neurotic. - Karla Brandau,
