Confession: I’m a little impatient 🏃🏽♀️
I like things to happen then and now. If I’m not getting my way, I’ll find an alternative. So I tackle on so many tasks and assignments myself, learning new skills and perfecting old ones. This results in feeling overwhelmed and unable to turn for help.
Everyday I wake up and think about all the tasks I need to accomplish to feel successful. Every minute seems to be slipping away as I’m working, my mind saying everything will be due tomorrow. But I don’t stop—I just push through the anxiety to get stuff done. So why do I feel like I’m wasting time?
Realization: I have all the time in the world!
During this quarantine period, I experienced some self reflection about myself and my work ethic. The constant fear of not getting anything done on time has pushed back my timeline, driving me crazy. However, I realized I have so much time to accomplish my goals and that everyday is successful. I can’t continue to exhaust myself, so I take my time. I think things through and I start to take notes. I continue to work hard everyday.
I believe it’s important to use this time to stop and think. Perhaps many of us were overworked, feeling that our clock is running out. We were trying to do too many things at once. Now we are forced to reevaluate and process this new information. Take care of your mind and continue working towards your goals!
