I don’t know about you, but I’m really glad the end of the working week is almost here. Of late, the weekdays have been feeling longer than ever, and the hours within them full to the brim with (too many) things to be done.
The way I see it, there are two ways to play out this situation – you could calmly address each task in turn, slowly making your way through your ever-growing list, or … you could just go right ahead and give in to a little of the madness. Because the first option isn’t always the best option for one’s long-term sanity, at the moment I’m tending towards the latter.
And so I turn to Baxter the dog to visually summarise my week so far … At first, things appear calm, everything is proceeding as expected, and there isn’t any sense of chaos waiting around the corner …
… But then, BAM! Just like that, your world goes *crazy* … that to-do list you’ve been so patiently working through suddenly explodes and you’re not quite sure how you’ll ever find the focus to achieve anything. On such days when everything threatens to overwhelm, when you’ve drunk as much coffee as you can stomach, and even the smallest of tasks feels insurmountable, I honestly think it’s best to just give in to the madness … at least for a while.
Eventually the chaos will pass, and things will calm down once more. With any luck you’ll find yourself feeling reinvigorated by that brief indulgence in madness.
Apart from pondering that well-known saying, ‘the older you get, the faster time goes’ … I’m wondering whether I’m the only one suffering from a case of ‘March Madness’? Has the third month of the year begun at a frantic pace for you too?
