Too Many Teams!

Sunday, June 17, 2012

I have started dreading coming to spark people and finally figured out why...I have too many teams and am totally stressed out from trying to catch up with things on each team.....therefore I have decided to take some drastic measures and reduce SIGNIFICANTLY the number of teams that I belong that I can focus on those left....

This will also mean resigning as leader of some teams...

So if I left your team it doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy it or want to be simply means that I really felt overwhelmed and unable to keep up with things here at spark people..and rather than quitting I am focusing on taking it a bit easier for awhile...
I have seen members that are in so many teams I wonder where they find the time to really get to know the members or participate in each team...and now from my own experience I know that it simply is NOT possible to handle a huge number of teams and get the most from this site ( at least for me)

In the future if I find I am once again able to handle thing here I may move forward with more teams...but for now this is a step to keep my sanity!

Thanks all for understanding and for all the love and support you have given me!

    I was in the same position a few weeks ago, and had to drastically cut back on my participation in SP! You will always be my friend and I hope you can reach the point where you are really enjoying SP again! Hugs!

    I am there as well, Sarah, but the problem I am having is deciding what to leave. I love all of you, but I am watching to see what teams I am behind in the most, and which I work to keep up with. The ones I continually put on the back burner will have to go, as much as I hate it. Praying for you in your decision with understanding. emoticon

    I've joined too many teams too - can't interact with them all, all the time. I admire your wise choice, and pray that God will bless your success on this journey we all share. emoticon

    I've had to pare down some of my teams - as a matter of fact, I recently noticed that one of my teams suddenly "went missing" from my list ....... so it seems that you're definitely not the only Sparker who has had to make this decision..........ya gotta do what ya gotta do to keep yourself together and strong!

    I hope you are still with us! I completely understand and myself only keep it down to a minimum of teams. Being a team leader is rewarding but is added responsibility of seeing to it that everyone's needs are met. I know God is meeting your needs but you need others to care about Sarah and we don't want to see you crash and burn!

    Sarah, Awhile back I dropped
quite a few teams. I plan on
dropping more.
I am dropping all but 4. They
are the only basic ones I get on.

    Sarah, I completely understand! I belong to a bunch of teams, but am only active in one & it's been that way for quite a while! I keep thinking I'll resign from some, but then I don't, because if I stay on the team, at least I'll see blogs from some of those other teams' members, & I can respond if I can. Other than that, I'd be doing the same as you, & dropping quite a few!

I do hope that our team is one you'll stay on - we've missed you lately, & I was just about to send you a Spark Message to follow up with you. But, if ours is one you choose to leave, I agree with Kitty that you'll always be valued as a friend.

I did also want to find out what's gone on with the new grandson (Bentley?) - any feedback yet from the Cardiologist?

Praying for you, my friend, & hope to keep up with you, no matter what!

    You most certainly have to do what is best for you. You shouldn't dread coming to Spark - I would hope it would be something you look forward to.

I'm certain that everyone will understand. You will be missed by the team but always valued as a friend.
