I clearly underestimated my workload when I agreed to do more than I should have this weekend. I had another paper to do for my class, along with 2 smaller assignments, I agreed to attend Art Walk with some friends, and I also had something to type up for my church. It really didn't dawn on me me that I had overloaded myself until right before the weekend. I juggled my time management and got everything done. I even had half a day to spare after completing my paper and assignments.
This isn't the first time I have overloaded myself and said yes to doing without really thinking them through. Now, I think I have finally gotten the message. I need to stop and think before accepting invitations or making commitments. I know I can get them all done, but it really isn't good for me to be overloaded, stressed, and crunched for time. It makes it even more difficult now that I have a family. Let's face it. I need downtime in order to function so that I can just do my best at life. If I am thoughtlessly making commitments, something is gonna suffer.
This weekend, everything turned out okay. Next time, it may not. So, let this blog be my witness. I am gonna try to think things through before making commitments from now on.
