If your relationship skill was an inherent trait then logically you'd never be able to get better at it. But I'm sure you know many people in your life that have gotten better at relationships, I know I do.

If you want to improve I can recommend a couple of extremely useful books:

  • How to Win Friends and Influence People

  • 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

    There are a ridiculous number of so called "self help" books out there but these two are full of genuinely useful ideas. They can't teach you everything, you've gotta put this stuff into practice to truly understand it, but them books have had more of an impact on my life than probably anything else I've experienced.

    Hope this helps ya mate :) and good luck for the future.

7 Habits of Highly Effective People

The list goes on. You might not be a leader in your particular organization, but the books still reiterate a lot of useful skills that some people seem to take for granted, like genuinely listening to what your coworkers are saying and how you should communicate your wishes to them.

Also it wouldn't hurt if more people started working in a more employee-driven manner. We've gained a lot of traction from studying and applying practices from these books at my place.

Either, I have an anxiety disorder too, or what you described sounds pretty normal to me! I think it's perfectly reasonable to wonder about the things you described - I guess the important question is how does thinking about these problems make you feel. You mentioned that it makes you feel like you don't have your shit together, and I find when you have a lot of stuff on your mind it's easy to feel overwhelmed - like you don't have a grip on things. What I find helpful (and I really should get in the habit of doing this daily) is having a journal on my computer where I just pour out all my thoughts. Anything on my mind I just start typing and it really helps me explore the issue, and when I've done this for everything on my mind I really feel like I've a got grip on stuff. I suppose this only works if you can touch-type though because it means you don't have to think about what you are typing.

In terms of organisation, there are a number of books out there on time management, but tbh it sounds like most are just trying to make money without offering decent advice. There are two decent books though:

Getting Things done - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Getting-Things-Done-Stress-free-Productivity/dp/0749922648

and the first things first section of this book - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Habits-Highly-Effective-People/dp/0684858398/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1394873069&sr=1-1&keywords=7+habits+of+highly+effective+people

I see you are already doing meditation and working out which are apparently both great for dealing with anxiety on a physiological level.
