#sol20- March 9, 2020
Today I am thinking of my busy brain and all the times I have planned ahead at school, only to have my “best-laid plans” changed when as time went by the parameters changed. Sometimes it feels like those last-minute non-planners have the advantage, as they save the time I “wasted” planning ahead.
My small moment today was thinking from that other person’s point of view- they might say…
Don’t worry, Erika, there’s plenty of time.
Let’s wait to see how it all plays out.
There could still be changes we do not know about yet.
There’s no rush.
But in my brain I hear:
Do it now- then you do not have to stress at the last minute.
Get it done now, so you can relax later.
Better to get it started than have to rush.
You know you take a long time to get things done- you can make changes later.
I know there is no one best way, but sometimes I wish I could take the more last minute way… I stress myself I know!
