Pressing pause on some things

I had some tasks that I was hoping to finish up before taking a break at the end of the year but I’m not going to be able to get them done.

I was feeling a bit frustrated about that and trying to think of ways to finish them. Not so I could be finished, per se, but so I could ensure that they weren’t popping into my head over my break.

But since those thoughts were leading me into considering working for an extra day, I opted out of that.

Instead, I have decided to have a look at where each project stands, to make a list of what comes next, and then pick a day after my vacation when I will restart.

So, I’m not done with them, but I am pausing them for now.

And that feels almost as good as being done.
