When your life gets super busy, and you find yourself running in circles, you need to slow down.
When you can’t find what you need to be working on, find the book you need, or find that you are booking various meetings one over another, you need to slow down.
When you get in such a rush, you fall down the stairs; you need to slow down.
A chief master sergeant once told me that I needed to slow down because I did not get something done in time. I thought he was a little bonkers at the time. The truth is he was absolutely correct.
When you are at the edge where you have too much to do, and no time to do it, the first thing you do is stop. You take time to sit down, prioritize, organize where needed, and set off to complete everything. This time you will get it done one item at a time, in a safe and sane manner.
What are you going to get done first, and where does it stand on the priority list?
