So, 2015 has been a busy and challenging year. I have been running to keep up or catch up most of the year. Every time I think I getting caught up, and other project appears, or more silly problems pop up.
When I am super stressed, I get grumpy, when I am grumpy every bump in the road, becomes a mountain to overcome. Things that should take five minutes to resolve, take half a day. I have let this happen a lot over the past two weeks. Days wasted in frustration - creating more frustration as things take longer than they should to resolve. Recognizing that this is happening, will help me to break the silly cycle.
I live a busy life, I frequently have several projects going on at the same time. Like the bike above, as soon as I finish one job, I start on the next. This bike did not become the busiest by spending all of it's time on one job, but by starting the next one without a lot of idle time between jobs. That is how I need to work.
I have a busy week, then I am taking a weeks' break for Thanksgiving. I am ready for and need the break. December will see me finishing the last past due project from last summer's unexpected time off, and starting a new and exciting project, a major research project funded by a leading foundation. 18 months to gather information from 35,000 hospital docs.

3 day workweek, 2 days off for me next week.
the new project sounds interesting.
have a good weekend!
Ah, you bring back memories of days when I worked for a major bank in Philadelphia. So much going on, the days flew by. I'm gad they're just memories now. Ironically, now that I am "retired", I am busier than ever but with things I WANT to do. You will get there too.
You certainly deserve a weeks break for Thanksgiving- - - and I hope you'll have a wonderfully relaxing time.ReplyDelete
(I also hope "relax" is in your vocabulary)
I hope you manage to completely switch off and relax during Thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
a few hospital docs is quite enough for anyone.ReplyDelete
