Being overwhelmed is an interesting feeling.

I think the root cause might be misaligned expectations where you expect things to be easy and manageable and when they are not you get this feeling like everything is crashing in on you.

Personally I enjoy being a little bit overwhelmed. It is a feeling that adds pressure to perform where you normally wouldn't. It means I have bitten off more than I can chew and I am stetching myself and my capacity to do more.

I am very excited for 2010 which is already off to a great start.

I am excited to be a little overwhelmed.

Nothing better than operating above capacity... you get little boosts of adreneline that I thrive on! My struggle is understanding when I think I am spiraling close to out of control (which is usually good), when in fact, I am starting to circle the drain (burn-out times 10). Overwhelming is always better than boring...

Overwhelming is nice in bits and spurts but the constant beat down of it can get to be kind of weary.
