I was an achiever, a giver, and leaned on my smarts, determination and some yoga to get me through.
And it worked, until it didn't.
In my 20's I was a full-on hotshot in the budding NYC tech scene, with some cool inventions, a loft downtown and an IPO under my belt.
But the stress, strain and increasingly frantic pace were taking a toll.
I started procrastinating, losing focus and feeling anxious.
Then I started getting short-tempered, which hurt my relationships.
In the mornings I dreaded getting out of bed, and more and more during the day I'd find myself staring blankly at the computer screen, forgetting what I was trying to do and not knowing where the time went.
Before I turned 30 I hit the wall, and hit it HARD. In fact, I had a full-on nervous breakdown.
Plus, in the middle of all this my mom was suddenly diagnosed with AML and given less than six months to live. I couldn't imagine living with myself if she passed with our relationship as broken as it was.
I was so far gone I literally had to blow up my life in order to rebuild it.
So I left my career and threw myself into studying everything I could about productivity, overwhelm, and handling stress.
Because there's a difference between "managing" stress (which is really just treading water) and consistently letting stress wash over you like a gentle stream.
And after literally hundreds of books, scores of seminars, countless interviews and lots of experimenting, the answers emerged along with a NEW calling.
Now I've successfully juggled the most busy and stressful times you can imagine, like simultaneously building a business, taking care of a new baby (and mother!), shopping for a house, and helping take care of my mom.
And instead of being driven to disrupt markets I wake up each day excited to help achievers like you avoid the traps and get it all done with time and energy to spare for love, friends and family.
