Why Do All Deadlines Happen at the Same Time?

by - Thursday, June 07, 2012

Do you ever go through times in your life where everything gets crazy all at once -- work, personal life, training, etc?

That's been me these last two weeks.

After a fairly mellow May, June has just completed exploded in my face.

I live and work in an awesome place

I'm working on several huge work projects and somehow they all have massive deadlines this week or early next week. I've been working late every night this week, which is so not my norm.

I think I can count on one hand the number of times I've had to work late since I started this job three and a half years ago. I kind of kick-ass at time management, but this week, even my time-management ninja skills are overwhelmed.

And of course, all my big personal projects (like a blog refresh, yay!) are in their final stages and really starting to heat up this week.

So I work like crazy at my paying job, then I come home and work like crazy on personal stuff, and then I collapse into bed an exhausted mess.

My training is hanging on by a thread. I've fit in two workouts so far this week, and I have plans to run with a friend tonight, so I'm still making time as best as I can.

And combining workouts with friends is helping keep my social life from completely falling by the wayside. Every workout this week has actually been with a friend. Three cheers for social exercise!

I know we all go through periods of time like this. I just wish my deadlines could be a little nicer and space themselves out better. That's not asking so much, right?
