Checking In

I went from being woefully, desperately underemployed to drowning in billable hours.

I’ve brought on a bunch of Personal Assistant clients and I am terrified that I can’t handle it. I’m terrified that I’m not good enough. I’m terrified that I’m going to let everyone down and get fired and that my whole world is going to just crash.

But it’s okay to be afraid. That’s what will keep me on my toes. I’m going to make it through. I am intelligent, resourceful, and tenacious.

And for now I’m also exhausted.

Don’t take on too much that you can’t handle it. I like how you began out talking about your fears and then ended on a positive note. I think you will make it πŸ™‚

feel the fear & do it anyway.

“it’s okay to be afraid” I loved that, just the notion I needed this Tuesday morning. See, you totally just inspired me without even meaning to πŸ™‚ Good to hear things have picked up for you! Hopefully the hours will soon level out to a more easily manageable amount.

its ok to be afraid, I do have faith in you! Good Luck!

I’m sure you are doing just fine. Re your note .. yes you can save your Canadian bucks til you get here. Just don’t come today as it is supposed to be really cold out today. You should come in the summer time .. when it isn’t freezing out. Hope your day is going well .. take care.

you are exactly right…having a little bit of fear will keep you from slacking…you can do it!

I feel like that constantly, even though I’ve been at this job for 5 years! (well, only 1 yr in my current role… but still!) You are going to do just fine. I hope it is that good exhausted feeling, rather than the other kind

You can handle anything and you’ll be fine! Challenge is good. And if it proves to be too much, you can always let a client or 2 go and focus on the others. Just make sure you save some time for yourself and your needs. Good luck!

I know how you feel. Exhaustion is just a part of my every day life. And I do my best work when I’m afraid it will all crumble around me. I guess I work well under pressure. Lol.

“I am intelligent, resourceful, and tenacious.” Damn skippy!

All the best!

RYN: Hey .. I am not a promoter of Ramen Noodles (as they appear to be called in the states). However .. it has made my dad a very comfortable living. I know that they are not the healthiest thing out there. But then again .. Kraft Dinner is not much better. Being a bachelor I do not cook .. as I don’t do anything that takes me longer to cook than it does to eat it. My doctor always wants me to

eat fruits and vegetables. I used to eat much better than I do now, but then I was working out several times a day and was pretty fit. But that was before I got married. In my mind the worst foods .. are fast foods that you get at McDonalds etc. You know the cheap easy foods that have no nutritional value. This I think is what many people eat, especially low income people. But obesity will

continue to be a problem in both our countries. Hope you have a good weekend .. take care.

OOPS .. my above note should read “several times a week”, even I was not that much of a fitness fanatic to work out that much.

In fits and starts, expansions and contractions, we grow bit by bit, financially, intellectually, and emotionally. You can do this, just keep yourself centered, as rested as possible. Now is the time to apply yourself to the job, there will be time later for other distractions. Good for you!

Congrats!! This is great! You will do fine. I have faith in you.
