Don't Do It All
Here’s what I’ve come to realize is at the source of feeling overwhelmed with priorities. Somewhere along the way something made it on the list that you really didn’t want there. In fact, you probably psyched yourself into believing it was important but deep down you knew it really wasn’t.
I don’t want to do it all but at times I get suckered into thinking I should. I conform to external expectations about how to live my life and sometimes make decisions that aren’t aligned with my vision.
The good news is when I take time to pause and reassess all what I have going on it’s fairly easy to identify the outliers. And with clarity of mind and a little bit of courage it’s not so hard to refocus and drop the stuff that had no business being on my plate in the first place.
