Still learning how to say “no”.Posted: 11/29/2011
As a student, I have really learned the art of juggling. No, not the circus way, unfortunately, but juggling a billion things at the same time. It can be fun trying to handle school, a practicum, work, programs, a business, and other school-related extracurriculars all at once. I suppose you could say that I am a serial multitasker. Or maybe I was just born that way. The natural ways of a Libra. I love being busy and all but there comes a time when I just need to start to learn how to say no. I would say that one of my biggest flaws is that I feel like I have the capacity to do everything — which is great, essentially — but I find it difficult to really narrow my focus down to one or two things. I feel like I can handle everything all at once but I guess it can be detrimental as well as it would detract from my performance or quality of work.
I have let down a couple people lately and may be removing myself from some of my current extracurriculars at school in the coming semester. I really feel that the university chapter has drawn to a close. As much as I love my peers, it’s time for me to move on, put my foot down, and just say no.
Learning process, right?
