How a little mindful delegation can help you get shit done when the pandemic has totally zapped your energy.
Now that we’re all settling into this new life where we exist within our homes at essentially all times, we’ve noticed that the formerly unobtrusive, casual assortment of things we need to take care of around the house are markedly more obtrusive and less casual. Kinda hard not to think about your to-do list when it’s staring you in the face all day every day like the eye of Sauron. The ring, it mocks us hobbits!
Yet for our undeniable proximity to these needs, it feels like we have less time than ever to tackle them. Don’t be fooled by those guilt-tripping coronavirus productivity memes- just because we’re stuck at home, doesn’t mean it’s suddenly easier or less complicated to summon the will and energy to do stuff you (let’s be honest) don’t really want to do. The internet is swift to judge those who haven’t used their ‘pandemic time’ to learn Xhosa or Marie Kondo their entire wardrobe, but just remember that other peoples’ standards don’t apply to you. The only benchmarks you need to meet are your own.
And yet, realistic expectations and logic aside it still feels bad to have to confront the things you’ve been putting off so head-on. Being stuck at home is a mental game that none of us were prepared for, the result of which is a skeptical confidence that we’re justified in struggling to get shit done combined with the nagging voice that tells us it’s always possible to exceed the bare minimum. Sound familiar?
It all seems so bleak. And yet, if we squint we can almost make out….looks like a rainbow-colored light at the end of the tunnel…yes there it is! Pursuit Concierge is still your go-to stop for all things delegation.
