Or at least that's the idea, to find balance and ride the wave rather than fight the current.
The next five weeks are going to be intense, so I am focusing on strength, calm, and perseverance to get through it. My boss is going to be away for a month, and there is a lot going on at work. I have been entrusted with keeping the ship afloat while he's gone, which is a big responsibility. Then the same day he gets back, I head out to DrupalCon.
I am really just going to try and keep a level head, and not let the pressure that I inevitably put on myself knock me off my feet. My talent is to listen and help where I can, and that's what I will do. I am going to be somewhat ruthless about my priorities and focus on doing what I need to do to be in good shape when I come out the other side. It is a big challenge, and will feel like a big accomplishment to get through it with grace, and without running myself into the ground.
