On doing more

Things are busy. Not just with me but with everyone I talk to these days. A campaign has been launched in my company to “ramp up” for the last quarter.

I have to admit that I had no idea how to ramp up. I already feel like I am going 100 miles an hour.

Then I remembered hearing a speaker talking about fitting more into your life. She used a bunch of rocks and a measuring cup to illustrate that is always room for a few more things. Especially if, she pointed out, they are important to you.

So I have embarked on my own personal campaign to do more. Here is my plan:

  1. Stop complaining about being busy. No one wants to hear it and I could use that time and energy to do something better.
  2. Just start. I will focus less on making lists and prioritizing and more on actual doing.
  3. I will recognize that some things are just not going to be perfect. Sometimes good enough is okay.
  4. I will make a point of saying thank you to the people who are helping me. That act will make them feel more buoyant which, in turn. will help me feel that way too.

There you have it. Aside from the fact that this has turned into a list, I am feeling pretty good about it. I’ll check in with you next week to see how things have turned out.

And hey, thanks for reading this. I really appreciate it.
