How often have I said to myself that there just are not enough hours in the day. Today happens to be one of those days. Why is it I can't seem to accomplish all I would like when I have the same number of hours as everyone else?
I believe there is time, it is simply a matter of re-adjusting my thinking and taking a realistic look at what is really important. I have found the following to be some of my obstacles.
Expecting too much. It becomes overwhelming sometimes to look at all of the details. Focusing
on one thing at a time will help lessen the stress.
2. Perfectionism-expecting to get everything done perfectly. This will often result in not beginning in the first place, or taking too much time attempting to make the impossible possible-there is no perfect, it is all a process of becoming.
3. Procrastination-If I would spend half the time doing instead of saying I should. don't want
etc. it would be completed.
4. Let others determine what should be my focus.
Sound familiar. Almost any Spark site has tips and suggestions to counteract these very
behaviors. So what is with me? The tools are right here, but as all of these are coming into play this weekend it has resulted in my becoming tired and overwhelmed.
I deeply appreciate all of the comments, and encouragement I am getting from my Spark friends. I also appreciate the push which helps me to return to what I really need.
Having said this, my sparking is being cut short (my choice) as I allow too many things to
drain me of my precious time.
