This quote was in my inbox this morning- exactly the message I needed. I have been racing around internally, trying to do 1,000 things at once and feeling empty because of it. I just launched my ecourse 3 weeks ago, while I had a friend visiting from out-of-town and had spotty internet connection. I'm still in my coaching training, with 3 clients, and quite a few large assignments to do. My husband and I are also house hunting, which is extremely important but not getting done. All these things going on and I'm feeling like a court jester, trying to juggle for the queen. All of these things are important but none of them are really getting my attention, because I am feeling too hurried and frazzled to really get anything done. It's a stressful situation- like a hamster on a wheel, running & running to nowhere. So, I am taking the lesson to heart and I will be slowing down my internal nagging so that I can actually mark things off of my list. A little focus goes a LONG way.
My plan for the next 2 weeks is to pick JUST ONE of these priorities each day and to work on a small portion of it until I can check that portion off and move on. No more trying to do it all at once and doing nothing. Do you get the hamster feeling too? How do you handle it?
