getting by...

YIP2010 - 223

I don't want to do just enough. I want to push and do more than what's expected. I don't want to miss opportunities to do amazing because I'm only doing what is required. I want to accomplish much.

But I'm realizing that there are times when it is okay to just get by. To squeeze in a bowl of cereal for a late lunch, and complete things by deadline instead of early, and think about things that you will make when you have more time.

Just recognizing that relieves some pressure. How about you? Do you take time to just get by?


  1. Ha! For me lately, it takes extra effort to just get by!
    Glad you are enjoying some even keel time :)

  2. This is a well timed post for me. I had so many things I wanted to accomplish this summer, and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. I need to enjoy the process a little bit more, and focus a little bit less on getting through the list. It's good to have goals though!

  3. I often feel that I'm running out of time to achieve all that I want to in this life - some goals are mundane, others wild and outrageous... But I plod along ticking things off my 'to do' list and adding more to the bottom like an endless recipt roll... :)

  4. Ah. I've totally been feeling this way, lately. No way to possibly complete things early, many cereal dinners, and recognizing that all these things I want to do may not get done, realistically, but trying my darndest to do them for myself and push the envelope anyway. :)

  5. I've just been thinking similar things. You're right- just realising it DOES release some of the pressure. :-)
