How many of you find yourselves in the following situation…Months go by when you feel like you can barely get your head above water due to the amount of work you have. You are always hustling and looking at deadlines that creep up on you.
And then comes the lull.
We all know about it but forget it exists during times of stress. But when it comes we feel like we’re not adequate and are waiting for the other shoe to drop.
It’s the inevitable “you want what you can’t have” scenario. When it’s balls to the walls time we’re running around and stressing but when things die down and the deadlines aren’t packed one on top of another I wonder what’s going on and what I might be doing wrong. I have things to do but it’s like I need that stress to rev me up. And of course inevitably we all feel awful about having a short lull in between the crazy times. So what do you do? I guess just enjoy the quiet ride and…not stress about it.
As my fiancee says, those people that feel bad about not going all out all the time and missing a day of work are the ones that employers should cherish.
What are your thoughts about the quiet times at work?
What did you do today?
