We all have deadlines, we all run out of money, and we all have some sort of debt. The poor has debt and the rich just have a bigger debt sometimes. Stress can be financial, economical, social etc. It could be many things yet we learn to balance them one way or another. There is a rule in life. One day at a time and therefore it's also worth mentioning to complete or do one thing at a time, for as long as it takes, one hour or day or week.
When we try to balance many things at once, we feel pressured to complete them all in one day let alone a week. Sometimes one event or "task" ends up taking a majority of the day even if it's a simple as groceries or taking your kid/yourself to the doctor.
Everything takes up time, we all cope with time management. We give time to one thing and sacrifice time for another. Time is non-refundable. We invest time for some sort of return or self-pleasure. Whether it is for school, entertainment, family etc. Devoting time is essential and is practically what makes us human. Making time for our selfishness or for other people. It is our decision with how we manage time.
Stress can make you slow down. It has a psychological factor that prevents you from staying happy, and focused. Could be multiple things or one major event or task. It's the pressure that gets to us. We boil from nervousness. And we sometimes end up not completing our tasks or events from being so tied up with stress. It's ok to fail, from failure comes success. It's ok to be so drowned out, let things flow. Regain control of the situations. Don't freeze. Untie yourself one thing at a time, and soon you'll notice you have less things to worry about.
Money will come and go. Family will always be there. Being prepared always helps with deadlines. If you're like me and wait till the last second, that's when things blow up in your face. For not having a gameplan, some sort of system to guide yourself throughout the day or week. Ever since I started noting things in my calendar I've noticed I had less things to worry about, knowing what's coming ahead of time and not missing payments or events/tasks that had to get done.
Don't be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week's value out of a year while another man gets a full year's value out of a week.
Planning and taking things a day at a time is the best advice I could give anyone. Coming from someone who hates planning and wants to take things spontaneously.
Stay safe out there, Hos out!
