Ugh…I have priority paralysis!

It’s not an official diagnosis but everywhere I turn, there are things to do. Some fit into the “really need to be done” category and “really want to do” category. I struggle with priority paralysis – what do I do first?

A couple of the things really need to do include finding an income. I don’t know if that’s a full-time job, a contract position, or maybe even freelance work. Since I have bills to pay, I need to figure it out. Unfortunately, when looking for jobs, I get overwhelmed because every job description seems to have different skill requirements – CSS? CMS? SEO? SAAS? Adobe InDesign? Google Analytics? Huh? Sigh…what should I learn? So I look at my other list…

On my other list are things like working on two of my volunteer positions. One group is hosting the annual conference this summer and I’m in charge (surprised?) of a couple of committees. This will be fun to work on. And for the other organization, I need to work on job descriptions, policies and procedures, marketing ideas, strategies, and so on. Again, I find this very fun to do. And there are books to read, movies to watch, closets to clean, genealogies to research, documents to scan, VHS tapes to get rid of, goodies to bake, etc. (Yeah, I know they don’t sound like fun to anyone else but me…)

Duffy and Priority Paralysis

So I think I’m going to follow the example of Duffy, this wise soul from the early 80’s…I’m going to lunch.
