That’s it. I have officially Burned Out.
There is a list of things I need to accomplish today that is longer than I really care to think about. It is preceded by the list of things I should have accomplished yesterday and followed by the list of things for tomorrow. These lists cover long term goals, short term tasks, intermediate range wishful thinking, global needs and specific crises.
And none of them are getting done today.
I suppose some of this is because it has been a hectic month. But they’re all hectic. Nobody I know has free time anymore.
It’s been the sort of day where I stare at one task, put it aside, stare at the next task, put that aside, and cycle through the lot of them until I find myself back at the first task with nothing accomplished other than becoming marginally older. I can become older without that kind of effort.
Perhaps I will just call it a day.
