Don't Sweat the Small Stuff!

At this very busy time of year, both personally and professionally, I thought a reflection on the never-ending dimension of time would be very relevant. It happens not only at this time of year, but throughout the year—there just doesn't seem to be enough time to accomplish all that we desire to. Time always has lapsed and continues to lapse for each of us from minute to minute, sun-rise to sunset, throughout our lifetime. Do you ever feel stretched for time, like me? Do you leave loose ends at the end of the day? Wonder how you are going to get it all done? I have come to the realization that time constraints will always be present and that I will never get it all done. I know that we all strive to be the best people that we can be. In order to be our best, it is necessary that we take care of ourselves. So what can we do to manage all of our life activities, both professionally and personally? I have come to find comfort in one of Richard Carlson’s (1997) many strategies from his book titled, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff—And It’s All Small Stuff.

Do your best to disconnect this weekend. Find time to take care of yourself and live life in the present.

Have a great weekend!
