If there’s one thing I’m pretty terrible at, it’s taking on the right amount of workload. I have a hard time saying “no” and an even easier time raising my hand to volunteer. That, my friends, is why I find myself still working full-time, co-running a startup, finishing my MBA this semester by taking three courses that begin tomorrow, and – oh – I signed up to take a foster dog for an unspecified period of time, and Sprout is not exactly thrilled that she’s here. Help.*
*Kidding- Fostering is something I’ve wanted to do for about a year, and this is my first time doing it. I think I’m just nervous, but I’m excited to help out in this capacity, too!
I’m realizing that along with my “one in one out” resolution, I need to learn to pare down in more than one aspect of my life (not just my closet). That means fewer papers on my desk, fewer items on the living room end tables. Rather than storing things away (I probably could fill our basement easily over a period of time), I’m really working on editing and curating, including what I do with my time after work and on the weekends. Otherwise, I’m afraid I’ll burn out too fast if I continue to live at the speed I’ve chosen. Ever heard of a “quarter-life crisis”? Pretty sure I’m thisfar from being its poster child!
If you have any recommendations on apps that keep you in check with resolutions, I’d love to hear about them. Lately, anything organization-related is my jam.
