It’s been a good few weeks with projects that make a difference. But often my work is filled with hills and valleys. Tons of work and then a lull and then slammed again.
Last week I was swamped. Plus I’m supposed to be working on the book and supporting a couple of civic projects and helping several candidates running for office, and, and, and more.
I was feeling run over by the 42-page to do list. Ok, not actually 42 pages but you can imagine.
What did I do? Keep running in circles? No. Did I work tirelessly through the weekend? No.
I took Saturday off technology. And the whole weekend off social media. And had dinner outside with friends.
I stopped running. Caught my breath. And started over on Monday with a much clearer head and more productive day.
Sometimes, you have to slow down to speed up.
What works for you?
Have a great week,
