There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being ‘caught up’, of sensing that your nostrils are above water, that catastrophe has been averted.
It’s been so good to finish today’s business with a whole lot of lagging phone calls caught up on, emails sent, discussions covered off. A great feeling!
How do you deal with a backlog of “nag-bits” (can I coin that word?)? Are you a plodder (which is what I’m slowly heading towards)? Or do you just like to bite off big chunks at once (yes, I still do that too)?
Perhaps you don’t get behind (sorry, can’t identify with that). If that’s you – what’s your method? And how do you cope when it all comes flooding in at once and there just aren’t enough hours in a day?
What words would you use to describe yourself when you’re feeling ‘under the pump’? And what words would you use to describe that feeling of crossing off the last item on a very long ‘to-do’ list?
