I find that I can get way in over my head much too easily these days. I'm in a constant state of doing. Between school, homework, and everything else, I always am juggling my schedule to try to fit it all in. If I'm not doing homework, then I'm doing chores. If I'm not doing chores, then I'm taking pictures for the yearbook. If I'm not working on the yearbook, then I'm doing something someone asked me to.
My other problem is that I also seem to have the inability to say no. If I have two important yearbook deadlines due yet someone on the staff asks me to do something else, I do it anyway. I tell myself I'll just have to make time. Being able to say no is such an important thing. I can't exaggerate it enough.
The quote above from Sid Caesar is something to live by. I always seem to forget that I shouldn't live from goal to goal but rather live for what's in between the goals.
Next time you think you're in over your head, take a step back and look at the enjoyable parts of life.
