Here is a quick 9-item list of things NOT to to do when you start to feel overwhelmed. It comes from time-strategy guru Tim Ferriss, from his incredibly useful book, The 4-Hour Work Week.
Just a note on that book, after reading it I don’t work 4 hours a week. I know that the author Tim Ferriss doesn’t either. That’s just a catchy title, but there is tons of great content in the book. If you haven’t read it, read it now! You can get it on Amazon.com or Amazon.ca with these links.
