At Koo Koo Restaurant
After helping with the morning presentations at my institute, we headed out to a all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant.
It had sushi galore. It also had pizza and fried chicken. It had four types of jello (apple, coconut, mango, grape), ice cream, 2 types of slushy (papaya and strawberry) and so on.
I couldn’t eat it all. I felt good as I washed it down with Coke and coffee. I was bloated and struggling with my belt.
I’m still feeling its effects now as I write this post. Regret? Just a little. But it was good food and I don’t do this often.
A Different Kind of Bloated
I have this feeling every day with email. I think I get about a hundred emails with 80% of them being junk. Sometimes I want to skip the day, but I know that I will face another hundred if I do that.
So I read the emails. I learn quite a bit from them. But to spend an hour like this at times doesn’t make sense.
So I make an effort to cancel them bit by bit. Deleting them is just a temporary measure. When I come to see I’m just simply deleting them without reading, I know it’s time permanently eliminate those emails.
Focus on the Important Things
I’ve learned that I can only do so much.
My strengths must be used to its maximum extent. A tough choice has to be made on my weaknesses and the things I hate to do. If possible, I should find a way to delegate the parts I’m no good at. The things I can do well but hate… well, I have to plow through and get them done.
When the body moves, the food is converted and the heaviness disappears. With my emails, it must be cut down to where I can process the information well.
I know what must be done. And it is done gradually.
