Today, a colleague asked me how I was managing to work three roles right now. I said that sometimes I didn't know. The truth is that I've been here before. Years ago, when I was doing project management and/or project coordination, the place I was working at was being divested. For those who don't know what that means, a chunk of the company was being sold off. A number of people jumped ship and those left all took on extra duties. But the skills I learned for managing projects are ones I use time and again when life gets hectic like this. I create excel tracker sheets to help me keep on top of things because if it just stays in my email, it gets lost. My planner helps me too. I also place a more important role on eating healthy, so that I have the energy to withstand it all and to help prevent colds. Things like knitting, reading, TV, and music help lower my stress levels too. And because I'm doing so much, my writing isn't moving forward as much as I would
