Fascination Advantages help us see that we don’t need to be all things to all people.
It’s easy to fall into the trap of multi-tasking. You feel that you need to do everything. Whether it’s because there’s no one else to do it, or you feel you can do it faster, the slippery slope is your life gets sucked into doing everything. Then what happens? You find yourself at capacity, stretched in a million directions and probably a little frustrated.
You wouldn’t be there if you didn’t have a fabulous work ethic. You see the work; you do it. In fact, there’s chance you can’t not see it, right? If you’re like me, you get sucked in and it’s oh-so-tough to not fall into that black hole.
