I believe I have to continually think about the what ifs to ensure I don’t overlook something or to prevent unpleasant surprises and control the outcome. The problem is, it doesn’t serve me well and takes me down a deeper, darker path.
If I am blessed to live to 80, I have 1,176 weeks of life left. 1,176. After listening to Rowena Tsai’s podcast, Why Everything I Knew About Productivity is Wrong… & What’s the Way Forward, I realized I’m overwhelming myself with tasks in which the majority are meaningless and just eat up my precious time on Earth.
Whenever I have a career discussion with my manager, she asks me what do I want to do/where do I want to go. I have no clue. I know what I like/don’t like, and I have always made the best of being picked up and plopped into another area thanks to re-orgs, but personally, I’m very adaptable.
