Anonymous asked: I've been getting really crushed by schoolwork lately, and it seems like the pile only gets bigger. How do you get past despair and into productive determination?
I say it all the time on this blog: action fights anxiety.
The only thing to do is just to start. I know it’s hard to motivate yourself to just start when you feel really overwhelmed, but I often start with a small task.. Something that I can get done and get off my plate and feel like I’m accomplishing things.
You’ll be amazed how quickly that sort of start can snowball into a TON of productivity. Just start—start right now. Do it. Go.
