Are You Overwhelmed or Overcapacity?Your Next Move

Are You Overwhelmed or Overcapacity?

When the going gets tough, we’ve all heard or said, “I can’t do another thing,” “I can’t show up in one more meeting," or “It’s all too much. I’m overcapacity”. But the question in this episode is, are you overcapacity or overwhelmed?

Tune in as Kimberly deciphers the difference between overcapacity and overwhelmed and asks you to evaluate which one is it? And learn when it’s time to be empowered, advocate for yourself, and put yourself in a position to execute at the highest level that is meaningful to you and does not impact your quality of work.


  • Do you work a 9 to 5? Or more like an 8 to 8?
  • The difference between overwhelmed and overcapacity
  • How overwhelmed can be fixed, 100%!
  • Evaluate which one is it? And create solutions, not just problems


“When new information is coming at you, deadlines are unclear, deliverables are flexible, it's really hard to decipher from being overwhelmed or being overcapacity.”

I love the messages and positive energy of this podcast. I want to use the tips in my daily life. I listened to “Mixtape Confidence” episode and it was very insightful on how personal life and work are a balance that we need to focus on. Also , i love the reference to the movie “Girls Trip”. The actress Tiffany Haddish has a very inspiring story . Hopefully one day she will be a guest on the podcast
