Are you overwhelmed with all there is to do? So am I! There is so much I want to do like develop a business model for Robin Gilliam’s Art – Web of Life Art Studio, write the sequel to my first novel, Gift of Desperation, and develop art and healing exercises and workshops.
THEN there are things I have to do, like the T-shirt quilt I promised to make my nephew for his Bar Mitzvah, the bookkeeping for my budding company and family taxes. OH, and did I mention that I have a full time job with important deliverables that needs my attention and substantial energy!
One day I was whining to a friend about my lack of time and my many must does and want to accomplish ambitions, and she gently said, first things first completely. To me first things first means what do I need to address first? Completely, now that was a new twist, because I can start things and then bounce all over the house distracted by other things that catch my attention and seem more exciting.
So with that I looked at WHEN things needed to be done. The quilt needed to be done by Valentine’s Day, taxes are due in April, and I set June as a goal for my business model. Since February comes before April, I decided that completing the T-shirt quilt should come first.
When I focused on completing the quilt first, I found the noise in my head quieted down, I was then able to relax into making the quilt, and the anxiety with being overwhelmed was removed. I completed the quilt this weekend!
What is your first things first completely today?
