Or at least that's how the old saying goes. I'm honestly not sure how that's supposed to work though, because lord knows I'm crazy busy and it doesn't feel like I get anything done.
However, this isn't supposed to be me whinging about working full time, and attempting to write fiction while also growing a media empire ...
It's more a curiosity as to how you fine folks deal when your to-do list gets entirely too massive. So ... how do you cope with a large workload?
Procrastination, and card playing :)
Really though, you just gotta get through what you can, and let the rest go. I start with things that I can expect to complete, that way I have incentive for the others. I need that pat on the back, and there is still less on the pile.
And I'm not attempting NaNo in any form because I know I will fail . .
I crawl under the covers and whimper. *grin*
It works because the busy guy always says yes (that's why he's so busy).
When my to-do list gets too massive, I break it down. Which items do I need to get done, and can reasonably be done, today? What can I put off until tomorrow.
I also say "no" a lot, but you already know that :-)
