Sometimes in life we bite off more than we can chew. I recently had a week where I had a Court appearance every day that week, and all over the state to boot. Normally I do not schedule things like that, but sometimes it happens. In a few instances I really don’t have control of my schedule. Emergency issues happen and they have to be addressed (which one of these was). A lot of times we put stress on ourselves unnecessarily due to what we are trying to do – seemingly too much. Also, doing too much can make or personal life suffer. Well as it turns out, more often than not, you can handle it, but the stress and anxiety leading up to a maxed-out schedule is not worth the relief of having it done.
So what is the take away? Don’t overload yourself, whether it be in your professional life or your personal life. Make sure you are in control of your schedule, at least as much as you can be and make a concerted effort to that end.
In the end you may still have emergency issues arise, but you will be able to handle them and everything else that you had to handle by not overloading yourself. (Do as I say, not as I do.)
