How do you balance your multiple projects?
Every few months, I have to readjust my expectations about how much work I can accomplish within a given day, week, or month.
I started working at the hospital in July. Sometimes (like yesterday), the days are 15 hours and I come home with barely enough energy to eat.
Samir and I still value the time after those days since seeing each other exhausted and for a couple of hours is a big improvement from seeing each other once every two months.
I walk to work, which means I spend a little over an hour each day on my feet. I realized this is a valuable time to reflect on other projects and flex my creativity muscles. I also realized that I have to start on other projects right when I get home because if I wait, I'll surrender to exhaustion.
There are still a lot of mistakes ahead and I know I'll always have a lot to learn. For now, I'm happy with this trial and error type of adjustment.
