Busiest you have ever been in life

It could be easy to complain that I am so busy at work and in life but seeing how so many people are struggling and the economy still sucks in many parts of the US I will refrain.

However, for only one of the few times in my life I feel like I am chasing my tail and stressed out as to how busy both our company and I am trying to keep up with all the work. Paychecks are skyrocketing and many things in life are going great yet I feel lost as I can only tread water to keep up while working. Being a top sales person can do that to you.

I am an extremely organized and hard working individual and to feel so lost and out of control is not easy or comfortable for me.

So tell me, how do you handle being hit with a tidal wave of work that doesn't seem to have an end in sight and yet keep chipping away to reduce your to-do list to a manageable level? I thought after 30 years of this I was an old pro but I am not so sure anymore......

I used to be uneasy when things got busy.

Now it's the other way around. When things are calm I start to get concerned.

I own my own business, though. Eventually I craved pushing myself and making more money and doing more business.

Being uncomfortable can be a very good thing at work.

I'm in "sales" for all practical purposes and I also tend to be task-oriented and a control freak.

I ultimately had to learn to write down everything that I "thought" I needed to do. Then I would take that list and look at it again - I would ultimately realize that some of things just weren't that high of a priority.

The more I focus on results, it seems the easier being "busy" becomes.

Just remember, it doesn't get done if you do it.

The difference between you and me is that you are working your ass off and getting something done. I'm stuck in the middle of a drought and not growing a goddamned mother****ing thing. I'm far busier now than when we were actually growing something. It is goddamned frustrating.

don't have time to think about it

beyond normal work hours and frequent morning, evening and weekend meetings we also have 2 daughters in dance, a son taking guitar lessons and they all are playing baseball with the son and one daughter having a ball practice each week.

It gets frustrating at times, but also wouldn't trade it for anything.

I wish I had advice other than "I just do it." I taught this semester, took 14 hours on my own, and watched twin toddlers all day by myself at least two days a week. You find time to get things done. I usually do most of my work after they go to bed, and I have the occasional weekend where grandparents can take them, but I am ready to get this semester the hell over with.

More than anything, it's really rat-****ed my ability to play golf.

Weed will relieve the stress.

Of course, productivity might suffer, but smoke enough and you won't care.

I find that it relieves stress and IMPROVES productivity.

Outside of work, I don't like to work. Weed makes mundane things like mowing the yard completely enjoyable...

I often feel this way. Make yourself not care as much about work. Just cut your day to what you can do within a reasonable time frame and after that let a few things drop. Take a breath and enjoy whatever it is you do when not working. Your career will move slower, but it won't stop and you won't lose your job. And you'll be happier.
