Just because we have a hat, doesn’t mean we must wear it.
We get to decide.
For many of us, the same is true of the way we spend our time.
Just because we’re good at managing a project, editing a podcast or designing a logo, doesn’t mean we must do it.
Moreover, attempting to do everything ourselves will all but guarantee overwhelm. Our time is finite while the list of things we “could” do is infinite.
Instead we might consider:
- What skills do I want to practice?
- What problems would I like to solve?
- Where do I enjoy spending energy?
