After my boss pulled me into a conference room this morning to ask how I was doing. I wanted to remind myself when he said. "You will never get everything done."
So even on days when I feel like that little guy in the picture, I have to remember, I will only get done what I can and when I can't get it done, I'll remember it will just on another day.
Between things at home, summer ending, taking care of our cat, busy weekends, co-workers having babies, hiring a temp, training a temp, trying to complete my own tasks and still do a good job at all of those things, I've been feeling like this hampster. It's been an adjustment and while I feel like I'm getting nothing done, I know that's not the case. It's just learning to manage it all and adjusting to all the change.
It will get done, just not today.
