I can't do it all...
I'm finally coming to the conclusion that I can't do it all. I continually think that one more thing can be added to the pile. "Sure, I can do that!"
Until the point when my "underpromise, overdeliver" motto comes crashing down to "overpromise, underdeliver".
And of course, the faster I run trying to get caught up, the more room I think I have on my plate to do other things. And the cycle perpetuates itself.
Contrary to what others may think, I *don't* have 28 hours in my day. I'm not even doing a good job anymore with the 24 that I *do* have.
All those things I *want* to do, both personal and professional, end up getting tossed to the side as good intentions, bullied out by the "urgent".
I need to step off this carousel, sit on the bench for awhile, and really think about what I'm doing and where I'm going.
Because the logical outcome of the path I'm currently on is not one I care to be part of...
