This post has particular relevance to my day (and my yesterday) where I find myself in the midst of resolving some conflicting demands on my time and energy. I am called upon to be Toastmaster of the Day at our noon meeting in downtown OKC. I am a new member and this is my first time in this role. Right now I am 'in the midst' of conflicting thoughts - one of which is 'I shouldn't even be reading this post, let alone responding to it-Heck, I shouldn't even be on twitter this morning! etc. etc.) and there are the numerous e-mails to juggle about the meeting Making progress though...better than I used to be at not getting in an overwhelm mode.
Your post is quite gracefully expressed and most of all I thank you because the reading of it was (one of my favorite words coming up) - USEFUL -
