We are our own worst enemies. I speak from personal experience. I have always been a rusher. I guess it comes from my nature or how I work. I am a project manager and there is always a timeline in everything I do. If you are making something you need a plan, a timeline and then some measurement to assess the progress. STOP
I have gotten into the habit of executing everything in this manner. Everything.
So I am learning that not everything needs a timeline.
I’ve been working on reducing my “rushing.”
Today has been a good example of how much more relaxed I can be if I don’t rush.
It was an office day for me.
This means at least 3.5 hours of driving. But with that I was still able to make lunches, get my run in, work my day, make dinner, do homework, enjoy my boys and participate in bedtime!
oh yeah and write this blog.
In the past this type of day would have put me over the edge.
But I am now taking one thing at a time. Enjoying each step. So dinner is a little later then planned, oh well. It was a really good dinner tonight. I took a little extra time and everyone raved about it. See just take some time to caramelize the onions and what a difference it makes.
I enjoy cooking but not when I’m rushing.
But what makes me rush?
Just me. ONLY ME.
So I’ve stopped rushing.
Simple as that. My days are much more relaxing. Yeah I still get tons done. But I am enjoying it.
And you know what, some things wait until tomorrow!!
