This past week has been one of those perfect storm situations that I can’t avoid no matter how hard I try – suddenly all these projects that I’m working on, be they personal or professional are all reaching deadlines, and basically everyone I’ve ever spoken to seems to need something from me this week. I’m not complaining, I’d so much rather be crazy busy than have nothing to do, but it’s frustrating to feel like to some extent this craziness was out of my control – I never would have planned it this way.
I’ve also been gearing up to totally revamp my business. This is something that I’ve mentioned briefly here, but recently I decided that I needed to start taking this more seriously than I previously have, which for me means a real business name, and a new strategy. I’ve been doing a lot of research, and planning, and while I’m finally ready to take some concrete steps (like designing a brand for myself) this project has had to be put on hold (see above).
I hate waiting around on stuff. If it were up to me, I’d work full blast 24/7 when I had a project – and then take a couple weeks off to do fun stuff/laundry when it was over. Maybe someday I’ll be so successful that people will fit their schedules around me/accommodate my preferred method of working (just let me have my dream, okay?) but for now patience is the name of the game. In the grand scheme of things waiting a week isn’t going to make a big difference.
So this is my public reminder to myself to not get so worked up. I can do it all – just not all at the same time.
