THE CUT AND RUNNER - 49/365
"Some things have come up so I won't be able to continue helping you on that project. Just some "things" ...you know...stuff - anyway, you'll have to get someone else. Yeah, I know I told you I'd do it but that was before this other stuff came up.
STUFF! Don't you know what the word STUFF means? Other things...activities...obligations...stuff that's more important than your project. But hey, if I end up with some extra time, I'd be happy to help you out...I'll give you a call and let you know."
Why is it that just when it seems like I have everything under control I get this urge to pile on more things to do...take on more obligations...make more plans? Am I addicted to the stress I feel when I'm cramped for time? Do I like rushing around trying to get everything done? Maybe I'm afraid that if I'm not doing enough then I'm not worth enough.
How much do you take on?
