over worked

Don’t try to do everything at once

You work twice as hard

get ten times as tired

and everything ends up half assed

One Thing at a Time April 28, 2014

So here you are standing at the bottom of your own mountain. A mountain of work activities errands and chores, yippy! Oh yes it’s all piled up just waiting for you to come and take care of it all, things you want to do ,things you need to do and stuff you wish someone else  could do. So how do you go about getting it all done?

I know the smart way would be to start with something simple , something I don’t mind doing that I can finish quickly and then be motivated to move on to the next thing. Moving at a relaxed pace and just letting everything happens through you. Now just because I know this most of the time it dosen’t always mean that I handle every situation that way. Oh no sometimes I just look at that pile and get myself all amped up. I start attacking and I attack fast and hard. I finish one thing and I’m on to the next before I even realize what I have already accomplished. I go into tornado mode, I just start spinning so fast and everything is moving at super speed, it starts to look like a Tasmanian devil cartoon. Now bang it’s all finished, but I didn’t have time to hit the brakes, so now I crash, hard!

Wonderful, not only did I do it all, I over did it all. I have now made even more work for myself. I’m achy I’m tired and I’m burned out. I did too much too fast and now I have to recuperate. Of course now I slow down, I don’t have much choice, do I? Instead of enjoying the extra time I have from getting it all done I now need to use it rest or sleep so I can recover, no fun.

Anyway the point is this, it’s better to make small piles instead of mountains. You can move from pile to pile, making small gains and feeling you have accomplished something.  Take a break from time to time, and get your work done in a relaxed manner. Even if you don’t get each and everything at least you are not too fried to get it done later.

LIVE and LEARN

Sometimes we need to move things around to find

the rite ratio for balance in our own life.

When you search within anything is possible.
