Hello wall, mind if I run into you?

You ever see times coming up when you are just going to be slammed beyond your ability to cope?

Starting this Wednesday I have five straight days of shooting, then an intense deadline on The Business Journal the next week. And in between I have about a million hours of work for all my other clients.

The next day I have scheduled were I might get some rest is April 28th.

It’s going to be 14 days of solid work and zero play. I see the wall ahead, I just hope I don’t hit it too hard. Please pray for me.

    Hmmm… I think I’m on the other side of that same wall, headed there myself. Why do I feel guilty for “stealing” 4-5 hours of sleep a night? Why do I feel guilty for going to my grandmother’s 88th birthday today and losing so many hours of work? I get to work between 4 & 6 am every day and work as hard as I can for as long as I can before I go home and collapse. I keep trying to make room for downtime – including family, music and fun. I fail much of the time. I have 3 incredible ideas for blogs I want to begin. There are 2 books I want to write. I have a side business that is not doing as great as it could because I’m spending well over the “40 hours” a week on my church job. It’s crazy, huh? I feel your pain and you will be in my prayers. Hey, at least you had the sushi experience for a small distraction. Peace.

    All work and no play make for another Sushi day… you can only go as far as your spiritual, mental and physical abilities take you. Creativity and productivity are closely related to rest and reduction of stress.

    Why do I get the feeling this is like Spring Finals and you’re on an all-nighter (week)?

    Twitt when you can–otherwise we’ll leave you alone

    I feel you man. Any chance you’ll get some help there any time soon? You can’t keep that schedule going forever.

    Look at me. Trying to fix others while I can’t help myself. That’s sad in so many ways.

    And for the record, I’d throw the sushi thing in the torture category more so than distraction.

    I’ll be praying for you too.
