I used to be so frazzled. I mean SO frazzled. If life had been my hair, I wouldn’t have known which strand to put conditioner on first.
“Too much, just TOO much” became my mantra. And I didn’t like it.
So, what did I do? More, of course!
And then came The Advice. It was one of those bits of advice that entices us to crawl into it like a sleeping bag.
Just do the next thing.
That was The Advice.
Sounding too simple for functionality – why do I like to complicate everything? – I did try it.
When I felt more overloaded than a baked potato, I would just do the next thing. And a lot got done.
Try it this week.
Instead of frazzling and frizzing, try just doing the next thing.
If you don’t have a next thing, think about what you’ve been wanting to do, and do that. Maybe something like: teach my children 6 x 6 = 36. Anything to get you thinking about a next thing.
And let me know how it goes.
Come back next time and I’ll tell you about installing a zipper in your sleeping bag of next things.
Fluttering by for now,
