Hello Reader,

"Don't Panic."

These are the two words made famous within the pages of Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." It's a simple phrase, but it isn’t always easy to listen to.

But while following through on those words above may be challenging, here's something you can do to go from panic to progress.

Get granular. Break down the task at hand as small as you can.

When you're feeling overwhelmed, it's easy to feel like you have too much to do and not enough time. But by breaking down the task at hand – which may actually be a project trying to masquerade as a task – into smaller pieces, you can create a sense of structure and order. This can help to reduce your feelings of panic and allow you to focus on each individual task.

So the next time you feel the familiar knot of panic in your stomach, remember those two words - "Don't Panic." Take a deep breath, break down the task into smaller pieces, and focus on one thing at a time. With a clear head and a calm demeanor, you'll be amazed at what you can achieve.

See you later,

That’s because every single type of appointment I have goes through what I’ve set up in SavvyCal. It looks great for the person booking, too.
