When I become interested in something new, I go charging after it like a bull seeking the matador's red cape. All of my time, thoughts and energy go pouring into my latest whim. I have to accomplish everything right this very second, so it's done and I can relax. Hours are spent reading, researching, planning, thinking; then I hit a wall and start to lose interest or accomplish part of my goal and the newness wears off.
As I sit here planning the future of Big Buck Ranch, I need to calm myself. The whole project does not need to be completed by the weekend. I can make my "to do" lists, it's fine to plan, but I need to slow down. I cannot let this dream consume my life so that my family, health, and finances suffer. Baby steps, must take baby steps! I have a whole spring and summer to accomplish projects. Though getting this little ranch off the ground is very important to me, I need to put the needs of my family before it. Breathe, be at peace, relax, slow down, there is plenty of time.
