Overwhelmed. Confused. Aggravated. Unproductive. Disorganized. Frustrated.
Ever felt that way at work? I did this morning. Three hours of false starts and wasted time over how much I have to do, how little time I have to do it, how little resources I have available, and on and on and on. You get the picture.
So I decided to do the best thing I could do…get out of the office and go putt!!!
How to Overcome Overwhelmed
We live just a few houses from the #1 green at Marcus Pointe golf club in Pensacola, FL, a wonderful 18-hole course surrounded by 500+ beautiful homes. I knew I needed a break, to get away, and I could not think of a better place to go for an hour. And I must say, it worked wonderfully.
After honing my putting skills for about an hour, here is what I learned about overcoming owverwhelmed.
Three Steps to Overcome Overwhelmed
Just walking on the golf course, hitting a few putts, watching other golfers warm up on the driving range, and just standing outside in the awe of God’s green world, literally took away all my sense of overwhelm. Then I strolled home and ate a wonderful lunch with my wife. That alone was a great ROI.
But there was more. This afternoon has been amazingly productive:
Simple story. Simply actions. Nothing you did not already know. Just a helpful reminder for you.
So the next time you feel overwhelmed, why not go hit a few putts!
