Being overcommitted is a difficult position in which to find or place oneself. I’d wager it doesn’t usually happen intentionally. Yet for any number of reasons, you want or need to say yes to too many activities simultaneously. And then you find yourself in a pickle. 

You don’t want to do everything half assed. So perhaps you push yourself to do everything really well, but then you are up all hours of the night, and are going nonstop. That’s a self defeating situation you’ve gotten yourself in to. 

And so something has got to give. You can’t do all, be all, manage all. Nobody can.

    How does one find the threshold before running past it? The sweet spot of busy and committed but not over committed – that’s what I am searching for.

      Perhaps by saying no to some things when the line feels close. Then, if you realize you have more space, saying yes to something else. The hard part is saying no.
