Small Business Owners Sometimes Need to Let the Plates Fall

http://www.flickr.com/photos/tpaddock/54384090/ Kimberism: I must govern the clock, not be governed by it. Golda Meir Recently my life has gotten away from me. It has been running so far a head that I can barely keep up. Evidence of this came after a good friend complemented my work and then questioned me about the numerous typos popping up in my writing. My first thought was that I am doing my best to keep all of the plates in the air. Then I began to consider what I needed to reevaluate and re-prioritize.

Balancing Overwhelm

Kimberism: Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing. Thomas A. Edison I am a person who loves to make lists. I feel great satisfaction when I cross items off my list as accomplished. However, recently I have been in the midst of some very large projects, so less actually gets marked off my list within any given day. To establish better self-care I have determined that I need small daily accomplishments, so I can actually see the forward movement in my life.

Kimberism: Don’t let overwhelm rob you of gratitude for the absence of underwhelm. As I sat down at my desk today a feeling of overwhelm hit me in the stomach like a fast ball.

Engineered for Greatness

Kimberism:  An ignorance of means may minister to greatness, but an ignorance of aims make it impossible to be great at all.  Elizabeth Barrett BrowningEngineering is the science of finding out the substance of what things are made of and what the best use is for them.  We each have been engineered, or I prefer created, for a specific purpose.  My husband who use to be in the home building industry says that in the building word, a governing body performs tests on 2×10′s to determine how much weight they can support before they’re used in construction.  Building codes tell builders how much of a load they can carry.  You have to know the sum value of something to know what it’s capable of, right?  That’s why 2×10′s are tested.  When you know what its values are, you know what it’s capable of.  The test tells what it can do.
