I am constantly feeling overwhelmed in this job and there is never a sense of comfort. I remember being someone who liked challenges, but one at a time. My job is really good for someone who is experienced more than I am. I constantly feel performance pressure, as I find it difficult to juggle so many challenges daily.
I work in a small team that has slowly undertaken quite a lot of work in new areas. I feel anxious in all meetings, almost panicking every time a new task / work is added to the backlog. I did not feel this way when the number of my tasks was less, and the pace of the project was slower.
It is like having to learn too many new things, look at too many new tasks instead of focussing on two at a time. I have tried to do time-management sessions and have started on meditation, but really wonder sometimes if I must change my project / team.
How do I deal with a job that is fast paced and demanding, and how do I effectively push back?
