And I remember thinking that I needed to maintain a level of less is more when it comes to obligations as nothing was falling through the cracks.
When I get too busy, things simply fall through the cracks. And if the pandemic taught myself and others anything, it’s to slow down a bit plus not take on too much. I l earned this after the office with the zone controlled Heating plus A/C was closed due to the pandemic. This forced myself and others to learn to toil from home in our own a/c however it had further reaching implications as well. I found out pretty quick that I had been way overloaded due to our inability to say no. Whether it’s to our family, friends or directors, I tend to stretch myself to thin in order to please or help others. That’s perhaps an admirable quality on some levels however it comes with a disadvantage. The disadvantage is that I tend to end up with too much to get done plus not enough time or energy. During the pandemic, while I was working from the a/c of home, so much of that other stuff fell away because all of us were sort of locked down. And I remember thinking that I needed to maintain a level of less is more when it comes to obligations as nothing was falling through the cracks. Obviously, I didn’t hold to that as I was so tied up this past fall that I didn’t get the Heating plus A/C service done. So of course, the gas gas furnace quit in the middle of the night which required an emergency Heating plus A/C repair call. That stung as it was both costly plus the Heating plus A/C professional confirmed that the problem would have been caught while I was in the Heating plus A/C service.
