Everything in Moderation….
Aside from love and chocolate, most things in life should be used and enjoyed in moderation.
One of those being….work.
The hubbs said something to me this weekend that invoked some choice words and lots of eye rolling…
“Do you want time to work on the girls’ costumes today? I don’t want you waiting til’ the last minute like you normally do, getting overwhelmed and then yelling at all of us out of frustration and loss of sleep.”
I, of course, didn’t take notice of the first sentence, but instead, took great offense to the latter. But he was right! ( insert the hubbs doing a happy dance )
If I’m working on a project and I’ve got a small window of time to finish it, or I just procrastinated too much, the monster in me comes out.
It’s really not a pretty sight.
And that’s why it’s so very important that I use my time wisely, and work on a project sporadically within a large time frame, versus working on a project nonstop and finishing it within a matter of days.
It gives me time to focus, to make my project more detailed. Really helps me bring my concept to life. And if I make a mistake, I have time to fix it and make changes.
Having enough time to work on a project also eliminates the chance that my monster will come out too! Less stress, less worry. A definite win win for everyone.
I’ve gotten slightly better with time management, but I’m no pro.
It’s difficult, because I’m definitely more right brain oriented. I can create like crazy, but when it comes to organization…sometimes I just wanna wave that white flag! It’s an uphill battle for sure. But I’ve made progress, and that’s always a good thing.
Don’t worry about the costumes…I got this! Thank you for your concern and offering me time to work on them. I promise not to unleash Mrs. Hyde. She will remain quiet and undisturbed. I’ll try to keep her in hibernation for as long as I can.
