I'm a fixer. A do-er. An achiever. There's nothing I like better than to put a solid check in that little black box. I make lists. I keep calendars. I have a training plan. Many years ago a mentor made the statement, "You just aren't happy unless you can tie a big red bow around it." Trouble was, I had too many loose ends and not enough bows tied. And when that happens I.....just......do........nothing.
Within all of that chaos was a message. The message was, perhaps, that I was doing too much. There were things I needed to cut, reduce, say "no" to. The problem was, how did I pick the things to cut?
There are four things I am committed to for 2012:
- My marriage and family
- My job
- Racing Hawaii 70.3 in June
- Exhibiting in a featured show in Utah in July
And I'm going to have to be OK with that.
