My life has gotten busier lately. And it's entirely possible that I'm trying to do too much. But I love a challenge, so I'll keep trying.
I really hate that overwhelmed, geez-I'm-such-a-failure feeling when you get to the end of the day and your to-do list hasn't even been touched.
So before I sit down to decide what needs to be done today (and for the rest of the week) I forgive myself in advance for anything that I won't accomplish.
Because life always gets in the way of our best-laid plans. I know this. I also know that that's what makes life the great adventure that it is.
If everything always went according to plan? We'd all die of boredom. And yet, knowing that, I can still put way too much pressure on myself to Get Things Done.
It's a waste. I recommend forgiving yourself in advance.
In my next post, I'll tell you what goes on that to-do list...
