taking on too much
Okay guys, for awhile there (the past few weeks) I felt so incredibly stressed. I was working a lot. It's the end of the school year, so it's chaos. I had a dog I thought was sick because of some alarming vet test results. I had a personal training textbook that seemed too daunting with anatomy that I refused to touch it. I had social media and a blog to keep up with, which may seem silly to some, but when they become somewhat of a second job then it really isn't all that silly.
So, whyyy did I take on another project?
1. I always wanted a YouTube Channel
2. I have so many ideas that I want to put in motion and goals to accomplish
3. I must be crazy.
I tend to have these ideas and I want to set them all in motion at once. Then I find myself in a whirlwind of stress. It's a common cycle for me. I know I do it to myself, so I won't play the whole "woe is me" bit...for too long at least.
I've always been so after everything in life. I want things and I want them now. I don't feel like wasting any time, especially when it comes to pursuing my dreams. I truly believe that working your ass off gets you places, hence the aforementioned "stress whirlwind."
Right now, I feel much better in the place I'm at. Perhaps, I've gotten the hang of vlogging and editing and uploading and exploring the wonderful world of YouTube. Or perhaps, my time management skills have significantly improved in the past couple days. Or perhaps, I knew I could handle it all along. Well, at least for now.
My question to you is, when do you know you're taking on too much?
