Life is full of changes. I’m excited by all of the opportunities coming my way, but there are some days, like today, when I wish that I had a cloning machine. I’m preparing for a lot of different things all at the same time. To add pressure to the pot, I’m suffering from a cold. I earned the name Super Woman because I’m always multi-tasking and I’m able to do it seamlessly. It’s my dream come true and more than I imagined. However, there are days when I wish there were at least two more exact duplicates of myself whom I could delegate tasks to. Since I’m meticulous in my approach and everything I do must be done to the best of my ability, it’s difficult for me to delegate tasks to others who may not treat my ideas with the same sense of priority. For me everything is a priority – even if it has to be delayed, it never really is. It’s just re-prioritized to another level to be revisited later after something else is completed. That’s the method to my madness.
I’m not alone in my need for a cloning device. There are women like me everywhere who have a ton of things that need to get done and who would also like to have a clone of themselves capable of helping them. They are mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, counselors, chauffeurs, coaches, teachers, physiologists, referees and chefs; everyday all day long. Women – we do it all and we do it well. A cloning device would help a lot of us in our day to day lives. Unfortunately, the technology has yet to catch up with the need. Or has it? That’s the beauty of supply and demand. If you build it, they will buy.
I have been blessed to have a tightly knit team of Super friends who are very supporting of my endeavors and they help to keep all of this crazy that is I, in check. But I can’t take advantage of them because they also have their own families, careers, goals, and endeavors that they need to apply their own energy to as well. That is the common thread that explains why they are my Super friends.
On days like this I have to plan, plan, and plan some more to get things done. I call on those who are able, and have to time to do something for me. I barter and negotiate to get things done. I try to remember to eat, squeeze in some meditation and prayer and try to exercise also. I plug into my mp3 player for focus because I can’t work in dead silence. I drink my green or chai tea and take by vitamin B12. I operate on as much sleep as I possibly can get and vow to rest when I’m rich; preferably in the Caribbean. Then when all is said and done I thank God, get up and do it all over again the next day.
Until cloning technology is available, and harmless, I will continue to do what I do; put all of myself into my tasks to turn out a good product/service. I will continue to lose sleep, forget to eat, do too much too often in an effort to do it all. It’s what I do. It is who I am. After all, I am Super Woman and to whom much is given, much is required.
…but a cloning device would really help. ♥
