I am at my limit with the amount of work accumulating on my desk today and I’m starting to lose it. I’m hearing voices and my vision is getting blurry. I am currently practicing a skill I learned very well in high school called avoidance. It is similar to a skill I picked up at my first real job called procrastination. Know it?
I am very happy with my job and am so thankful to have it and its flexibility but sometimes? Sometimes you just need a break. And the problem with needing a break is that usually when you need it, you are too busy to have it. I was filling out a form a few minutes ago and went looking for the answer in one of my files when I realized I didn’t even know what I was looking for. I went back and saw that the question was asking for MY NAME. There was also another instance that I was going to write about but I forgot what it was. Yeah, I’m there.
So this was my version of a break, if I can just make it a couple more hours I can take off and technically leave this pile of junk for tomorrow. See Mom, I told you I learned something in school!
