Sometimes I feel like I’m going in too many directions at once!
I have a problem saying no to people, for one thing. And at the time, I really wanted to say yes because I like to be involved and be helpful. Then, after a while, I begin to feel overwhelmed and I freeze up.
I’m no longer creative.
I’m no longer inspired.
I’m not writing.
All I can think about are my commitments and I have to follow through.
Do you make promises and then later wish you hadn’t?
I’ve discovered, however, the best way to tackle too many commitments is to write them down by priority. Then check each one off as they are completed.
Next time someone asks me for help, I’ll try to remember it’s okay to say no. But knowing me, I’ll most likely say… Sure, I’ll be glad to help out!
