First step to dealing with a problem is admitting that you have a problem. And if you want to find the right answers, you have to start by asking the right questions. If you have a large problem or a huge amount of tasks to do it can be overwhelming. Break the problem down into smaller parts that you can work on and finish in a reasonable amount of time, before you go to the next thing on your "laundry list". Putting your computer in a washing machine will probably not solve the problem you're describing.
"Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional."
