Chapter 3. Blame It on the Environment > Your 10 Life Roles - Pg. 29

Blame It on the Environment 29 Many people find that they are more productive when they're busy than when they have nothing to do and no structure to their lives. But when that busyness is taken too far and becomes an overload of responsibilities, the opposite happens. People become overwhelmed and unable to function. Every time they think of working on one project, their minds start spinning with all the other things they have to do. The energy they expend worrying about those other commitments drains the energy they need for the task at hand. In Chapter 9, you'll learn ways to turn down commitment requests as well as ways to get out of or minimize obligations you've already committed to.
