I love to be busy! Work hard, play hard, then do nothing for a week. But sometimes we take on more than we can manage and then it is important to re-assess and be honest with yourself and with those to whom you have made a commitment. Learning how to prioritze your tasks is so necessary and I recommend the Franklin Covey system, it’s fantastic! But also being humble enough to say that maybe, just maybe, you can’t get it all done as promised so you need a little more time? Better to be a little late than be on time and completely overwhelmed.
“Today I am willing to look at my commitments and make sure I have only taken on what I can do well.”
