When we know at the back of our mind that there is a task we need to do, it is amazing how much other less important stuff we can get done 😀 I am a master at this. But I am getting good at surrounding my self with tasks that are almost equally important to accomplish. This way no matter what happens, I get some important stuff done 😉
But those tasks that are there at the back of our minds will eventually start to weigh on us, and day after day they seem like more overwhelming task and we just keep pushing it further away. I have loads of these. I know with my blogging schedule, playing six days a week, rehearsals, releasing a song a week sometimes it seems like I am on top of everything. But if I only told you what I am pushing aside… You’d think I am mad 😀 So don’t worry you are not alone.
Now as this is a Saturday post, I am not going to tell you to get on with it. I am going to suggest you put some time aside in the near future, preferably on Monday, when everything else can wait and get that big task that weighs on you like a big rain cloud done and dusted. What I want you to do today, is to stop thinking about that task. Do something fun and relaxing, go for a walk, grab a coffee with a friend or go out to see a live concert. Get off the computer and just give your mind a break.
If you manage to do this, I bet you will have much better chance to accomplish that big task on Monday. It is important to clear those big tasks once in a while. They can start to have an effect on everything else you do. But today, just relax 🙂
Have a great weekend.
