Get It Done With Breathing Room

I worked from home today.  As stressful as my job has been the past few weeks, I am really fortunate. Love that my job is so flexible that I can wake up and decide I need to stay home.

I was able to do work uninterrupted and ran out around 11 to pick up my son's school uniform so it was one less thing to worry about.

Get It Done Tip: Don't wait until the last possible minute to get something done.  I could have waited another 2 1/2 weeks to pick up the uniform, but even this was cutting it too close for my liking.

If you wait until the last minute it'll just add to your stress and you run the risk of something coming up that doesn't allow you to accomplish the task -- give yourself breathing room!

We were supposed to go with friends out to dinner, but some members of the other family had a cold so they cancelled.  We took our kids out for a quick bite and now we're home snuggled in bed about to read a National Geographic's Little Kid magazine.
