What can I say? Writer’s block. Overwhelmed. Busy. Distracted. Lazy.
I have not written for a long time. And I apologise to everyone who has been following me here.
I have broken every rule I have set for myself when I first started this blog. Post something every week. Anything! A simple rule. And yet I broke it. For almost 3 months! OUCH! Sorry.
So let me write something today. Or rather. Let me ramble.
I sat down with one of my folks in StrengthsAsia today and listened. She called it downloading her head space. Cute.
My team has been working really hard and it does get overwhelming for everyone. And it is only January! The targets are set and the chase is on. If they don’t feel the pressure, I would be surprised! I admit. I myself feel anxious, pressured, overwhelmed ever since 2018 started.
My company is doing really great and it does not looked like it is slowing down any time. Morale is high, and I would say we are all in the pressure cooker a little too soon, too early.
Where there is success, hard work is always required. I believe in working hard. But I never believe in working hard and at the expense of quality life for ourselves and with our loved ones.
It got me thinking. Thinking about everyone who is overwhelmed, busy, angry, sad … Actually, it got me musing …
Be down but not out
Be sad but not self pity
Be alone but not lonely
Be away but not absent
Be angry but not forever
Be foolish but not stupid
Be afraid but not frighten
Be busy but not consumed
Be disappointed but not give up
Be discouraged but not dejected
Be overwhelmed but not over-runned …
