I am guilty of over committing to in-depth projects and time consuming volunteer opportunities. I've read a couple books on time management that clearly state one of the most important things to do while managing your time is to learn how to say no but the thing is, I don't want to say no. My parents must have done an exceptional job convincing me that I could do anything I set my mind to because I naively believe it to this day! Call me thrill seeking but I get this surge of adrenaline just knowing that deadlines are approaching and I may or may not have just enough time to finish everything on my plate! Run little Hampster, run!
