I had a crazy run the last few weeks. Things at church are amazingly busy, we’re moving at a very fast pace as a leadership team, with decisions on building, land, adding another service, sharing our building, etc. Sheesh. On top of that, I’ve been doing school stuff, and just had alot going on. A final paper, final exam, etc, all of that hit at about the same time. There was one week where I didn’t think I was going to make it!
But, I did, and schedule-wise is better (partially due to the fact that the elders approved hiring me a full-time assistant.) But, what happened when my schedule slowed is what always happens when I get a little slow time: I get sick.
That’s right, the runny nose, can’t-sleep-at-night coughing, sneezing stuff. I wish that just once my body would let me abuse it, then when I take a break, it would simply be happy with not being pushed as hard, rather than sticking it to me with sickness! I have a test this weekend, I’m behind in my reading, and I’m just plain tired. I’m looking forward to this summer!
Anyway, I just got a new book in. It’s called “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity” by David Allen. When things slow down and I don’t feel as stressed, I plan to read it 🙂 Hopefully it will help!
