There was a point last week when I had message lights blinking on all three voice mail systems and over 200 unread messages in my professional email. I haven't even opened most of my personal emails.
I feel as though I'm behind on everything. That makes me more curt with people which only adds to my stress level. Stress makes me less efficient. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. I have two business trips this week and maybe one next week. After that, life will be calmed again.
