Yesterday I looked at all the posts on my home page and realized that almost every post was either about a guest post, a sponsor feature, or was either coming off of or looking forward to the weekend. That’s crazy! There’s really only one explanation for it: I’ve totally over committed myself. And not just last week, like for a few months.
The thing is, I’ve been going a mile a minute since February. I’ve been trying to build my business and whatnot, and when we were in Lexington, Brian was studying for finals and it was fine. I got by. But ever since we moved back, I haven’t been spending as much time on work, but I’ve been stressing more because I’m committed to the same amount of things, but don’t have as much time to complete them as I did before.
So the last few weeks or so I’ve been really trying to simplify. I took a long hard look at my commitments, and tried to figure out what I could cut. One of the things that I decided just wasn’t fitting into my schedule was writing for LA Family. I loved writing those articles and interacting with the other writers, but at the end of the day it was just another thing on my to-do list. I still have a long way to go, but I’m trying to be more aware of the choices I make and how I spend my time.
Have you had to simplify lately? I’d love to hear how you did it!
