If you don’t get enough, take it easy. Ask others around you to take it easy. Make sure you build buffer in your day and don’t pretend to get done with what demands continued attention and concentration.
Hopefully, it’s something you can fix with the following good night of sleep.
When thinking of a new idea, something to add to your website, an activity you would like to try, a way to approach a difficult conversation. Write it down. As writing it down will serve three purposes.
First, you will remember it. If you keep it in your mind, it’s probably going to get lost among other things you think of, you do, you listen to, you read.
Second, you will crystallize it. It’s probably just informal and wild in your mind, and when you put it on paper (or on screen), you are forced to make sense of it, to give it shape, to tame it and make it real.
Third, you will prioritize it. Not all things you’ll write down will be worth pursuing, and therefore you will have the clarity to understand what you will take forward.
Assuming good intentions is truly the only way to build relationships and stay sane.
Some people might act out of malicious intents, trying to manipulate others in order to get ahead. Most though go about their lives in the exact same way as we do. They might have different ideas, points of view, preferences. But they are trying to do their best with the cards they have been dealt.
The alternative is to question everything and doubt everyone.
It is possible, and some choose that. I am not sure though they understand how much energy, attention, resources that is taking from them.
