It's been a rough couple of weeks for me.
I felt like I was at a standstill in every way possible.
My life became this web of just nonsense. I guess.
It's been one of those times where I have a lot to do, but everything depends on something else. AND that something else can't be done until this other thing is done. This OTHER thing is dependent on the OTHER person. It's just a web of muck. The business is just growing so fast.
But ultimately, the last thing that needs to be done is THE MOST IMPORTANT AND HAS A DEADLINE THAT WILL NOT BE MOVED. CANNOT BE MOVED.
So, I've been a wee bit overwhelmed with NOTHING.
Scratch that. I've been a wee bit overwhelmed with IMPENDING DEADLINES.
I needed to take a step back.
After a week of being mad and frustrated AT MYSELF for getting into this mood....because it's all perception. It's all in how I perceive my environment, right, Mike?
Wednesday or Thursday were probably the worst days. That's when I went through and cleaned out my calendars.
I needed to go back to basics. (Over the years, that phrase is a constant when things get out of control).
Whether I like it or not, I have step back with training. I have to step back with everything that is not a priority. Everything else can wait.
On Friday, I woke up with a renewed sense of being able to tackle everything in front of me.
I decided to do the race after all; this after not running for a few weeks as I was going through my identity crisis.
In fact, this race will HENCEFORTH BE KNOWN AS: DAY 1.
That's right. New focus or better focus on what is important and what I need to do to maintain my sanity....and not make everyone around me crazy.
With that said, I guess I better head off to my race!
