How do you keep all of the balls in the air?
How many balls can you juggle without dropping any?
If I were to toss one more ball into your routine every few rotations . . . and you reached your capacity . . . how would you decide which balls to drop, and which balls to keep juggling?
The reality is that once you exceed your juggling capacity, you run a high risk of dropping ALL of the balls . . .
and your show stops . . .
til you can gather your wits and begin the juggling anew.
Most of us are juggers in life . . . Whether it’s time, energy, money, relationships . . . It’s all juggling.
Juggling requires HIGH responsibility . . . and potential catastrophic consequences when things go awry.
Attention to priorities – FOCUS on what’s happening NOW with a good overall vision of the grande scheme is critical.
So . . . Casual coffee with a friend is on the calendar . . . Client surprises you by popping into town to see a few houses . . . You can’t do both (Don’t even TRY it) . . . Which one will it be?
No-one is going to judge your choice. What’s essential is that you think it through and make a CONSCIOUS choice . . . and COMMUNICATE effectively.
Do this wrong, and you potentially damage 2 relationships (Friend and client).
This is important stuff to consider as we enter our “Busy Spring Season.”
Don’t drop balls that matter by attempting to juggle too many.
