As a professional organizer I am all about making the best use of my time. I like to think I practice what I preach in that I try not to overload myself with commitments. It can be really stressful when you overload yourself with commitments. I really wanted to sign up to be a volunteer maintenance gardener at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. I even went so far as to go for training. Then I totally stressed myself out because I realized that the only day I could confidently give the garden 3 hours is a day that I have a regular business lunch meeting. They are on opposite ends of town. If only I could send myself across town at warp speed and in the process get cleaned up and ready for a business meeting. I had to make a hard choice. I know there will be a time in my life when I will not have business meetings and other related commitments. That will be the time for me to take on volunteer gardening responsibilities.
