Sometimes the key to getting a lot done is to actually do nothing at all.
I’ve been dreading writing this post. Massive writer’s block. “I have nothing to say” said the tired little voice in my head (no comments from the peanut gallery).
Normally I write on Sundays. Writing is relaxing for me. Unfortunately I didn’t get any writing done recently because I’ve been slammed with work and preparing for another onslaught. I have spent most of my days of late writing, working, and meeting.
My day today has been packed with meetings and calls. I’ve been silently freaking out about this post being later and later in terms of posting time. And then inspiration hit while on a call with a client.
The client was bemoaning not having enough time to do everything. Too many meetings, calls, projects, and crises were consuming all available free time. It was getting harder and harder to recover because they were getting deeper and deeper into burnout each time they tried to take a break.
Then I made the fateful comment.
