Why do I always get involved in organizing community events that I do not profit from?
They are costly in terms of time and effort, as honestly speaking, I have too much stuff juggling in my hands to actually bother with them.
Maybe I’d just got to learn how to say no, but the moment someone offers me the opportunity to create something out of nothing, I can’t help but be excited and take upon the challenge.
For example, we’re on the way of creating Taiwan’s first amateur comedy night featuring Asian performers. With contacts from Taipei’s better Toastmasters and some professional comedians, it’s going to be a success (or at least we hope so), and we’d pack the entire house!
There’s also the wine tasting we’re organizing this Friday — the seats are already FULL and the numbers are still increasing so we would have to turn a few people down (Sorry, it was in first-pay-first-serve basis; you snooze, you lose).
And lasertag tournament next Saturday.
Aaaargh, checking my social diary, I can’t help but shake my head.
No longer am I doing something limited to my organization, but am also part of the Welfare Committee in my company, as well as doing community project organization for the English speaking community in Taipei.
The problem is, I only have 24 hours a day like every one else, and along with my hectic work schedule, my huge project this June, studying for the CFA and organizing events for the Taipei community, I have my hands full.
So goes back to what I should do: Prioritize.
Just wondering which one should I do first!
Aaaargh, are other people like me? Or am I just giving myself unnecessary pressure?
Why do I always get involved in these sorts of mess?
Or maybe such is a reason why life’s always been colorful.
Cest la vie then.
And yes, I promise to cut back on the activities I do going forward.
Cheerio peeps and do behave.
