There's something addictive and exciting about handling multiple situations at once. It's challenging and jazzy; phone calls here, meetings there, business, family, the day's to-do list. This multi-tasking may be thrilling on some level but it burns us out. For the long haul we need strong and steady. It's a mindset. It's a decision not to be drawn off course. It's focused and grounded and sustainable and smart.
I catch myself getting frazzled and stop. I need to be strong and steady for the long haul.
