So what could I accomplish if I felt like 200%? What could and therefore maybe should I expect from myself if I gave myself what I say I need?
I think it’s time for an experiment. For the next week, I’m going to be ruthlessly selfish (that’s what it feels like, anyway). I’m going to pause during my day and ask myself What is most important to me right now? And then I’m going to do that, instead of the thing that feels most urgent. Maybe dinner will be 15 minutes late because I chose to take a shower in the morning instead of doing the dishes. Maybe I won’t get to the 9 year old’s math lesson today because I was working on a design for the e commerce business. Is that the end of the world? Let’s see what happens.
