It’s funny because I realize I’m an excellent “faker”. Awe, come on, dirty minds! What I mean is, because I’m so organized and so very detailed about most things in my life, people tend to assume I’m a multi-tasker and/or that I can handle more than one thing at a time.
Not true at all!
In actuality, I really can only handle one thing, one situation, at a time. I focus on that situation and do it to the best of my ability and then move forward onto the next situation. I generally don’t fester so I get things done quickly and that gets me to work on the next situation. This gives the illusion that I’m a multi-tasker, but in fact, I’m SO NOT!
Usually, I use a priority formula of sorts to determine what drama needs to be dealt with first. But, for the past few weeks, it hasn’t been working and I’m curious, how do you handle dealing with so many “priorities” at one time when everything seems to be the most important to deal with RIGHT NOW?
And here’s the thing: generally, I can even deal with that – I’ve had many “priorities” at one time in the past and have just dove in head first and worked through the first problem or situation and then the next, etc. But these past few weeks have been different: This time I feel like every problem has bled into the next somewhat. Even if they have nothing to do with each other, somehow, my mind just keeps going a mile a minute constantly re-working scenarios, jumping from one subject to the next. It’s quite frustrating and, I have to admit, a little scary!
Oh, and just as a side note: I don’t do drugs. A friend suggested I try what he calls “medicinal marijuana”. Hilarious! I will say this though – he had me cracking up for quite a bit and that alone was much-needed relief!
