Stepping Back

Some days at work get very busy, especially when I end up wearing 3 or more “hats!”

I am a manager and have my own work to accomplish, but then someone may be out so I have to do that person’s job in dealing with the public, up and down from my desk to the Reception Desk and phone.

Then there may be a number of students who arrive for tutoring and I end up also working as a tutor.

I have to relent, step back from my managerial work and put it on hold, realizing that trying to do it all will bankrupt my energy levels.
