Busy is good, right? I’ve been busy and it’s been a good busy – I attended a fabulous yoga event hosted by Murad Skin Care and Fitness Magazine last week, was announced as a FitFluential Ambassador (so happy) and I just came home from Bloggy Boot Camp/Women Get Social yesterday. Being around amazing women and getting a chance to feed your mind, body and soul in new ways is always inspiring to me. I was ridiculously anxious to recap some of the meaty tid-bits of these events and share them with all of you but when I sat down at my computer, I got a message from Google Drive telling me that my storage capacity was full. I couldn’t even download another image. I was angry. I freaked out. I started crying and then I realized that this might be a sign:
Yes, I could pay for more storage and just keeping going but I didn’t like the method nor the madness. My “holy crap I’m soooooo busy” mentality meant that I was just bulldozing ahead to get tasks done, without really taking the time to do things right. I’ve been doing a million things lately and few of them very well so I need to make a change.
I’ve gotten a clear sign from the tech gods that I need to slow down and get myself organized with my life, blog, business and family. I‘m not giving up this blog, I love it (you, the reader and the amazing people within the blogosphere way too much to leave)!
However, I do think I’m going to scale back my posting schedule for a little while. I want to be a better version of myself. While I know I can’t do it all, I do know that I’m not the blogger, entrepreneur, friend, family member and “athlete” that I want to be (I’m having a ton of trouble referring to myself as an athlete but since I have the LoziLu Mud Run and the SoCal Ragnar Relay in the next month, I’m going with that description for now).
As we enter into the last third of the first quarter of the year (do you like my math skills there?), I realize I’m failing miserably at meeting my #14in2014 goals and if I plan to get anywhere close to meeting them, things need to change now.
Again, let me be clear. I’m not going away. I may just be posting on an irregular schedule for a little while. I’ll still be active on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and hope you’ll stick with me there. Who knows, maybe this will be the time that I’ll delve into Google+ and Pinterest and find you there?
Watch this space. I know there are great things coming soon enough.
Tell me, what’s your best computer organization and/or time management tip that might help me get through this transition period faster!
