Crunch time

We’ve all experienced it, whether  it’s trying to get to wrap that birthday present on the way to the party, get to work on time, or finish that English paper before 12:00 that night. So what do you do when there’s too much to do and far too little time to do it? Well, that’s where people get interesting.

You start off lying to yourself that you really can do it all, even though it seems impossible: this is the denial stage. Then comes the quitting stage. You finally stop lying to yourself about the possibility of doing it all. And sometimes that’s where you stop: if you can’t do it all, then you may as well not do any! Those who persevere through the depression of the quitting stage soon have to decide what to do with their limited time and resources. They agonize over the painful decision, but once it has been made they have the (relatively) easy task of simply doing what they have decided to do.

All that to say, take heart! The end is in sight…even if you can’t see it now.
