Too Many Balls

It was a busy teaching day. ๐Ÿ’ช

I had 3-morning classes.

And then in between, I was trying to slot in several kinds of stuff.

My teacher was doing his workshop in Hong Kong and I logged on to ZOOM and joined the first 90 minutes of a 3-hour workshop and then I dashed out to teach.

After teaching I assisted in Teacher Training giving feedback to new teachers in their teaching practicum.ย 

When it was finished I logged back on ZOOM and joined the second half of my teacherโ€™s workshop in Hong Kong.

Later my teacher sent me a Whatsapp message with 3 wordsโ€ฆ.

โ€œ๐—ง๐—ผ๐—ผ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜† ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น๐˜€?โ€ The text said. ๐Ÿคฏ

The first reaction I had wasโ€ฆ โ€œ๐˜š๐˜ฉ๐˜น๐˜ต. ๐˜๐˜ฆ ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ก๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ง-๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ด ๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Then the second reaction was feeling sheepish as I know he was right. ๐Ÿ˜

๐˜”๐˜บ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ด ๐˜จ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฅ.

I wanted to do more, do as much as I can.

I am trying to juggle way too many things.

As he said, โ€œToo many ballsโ€ฆโ€ I was distracted. I was annoyed that I missed this half and that half. It didnโ€™t feel complete. ๐Ÿ˜–

Always go for doing ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฎ ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ.๐Ÿ™Œ

Instead of doing many things, do one thing REALLY REALLY WELL.

But the biggest reflection on these little 3 words, is that I have someone, who knows me well; who sees me before I do; who I respect and trust; and who can smack me and I would immediately be alert and adjust my course. ๐Ÿค—

Do you have someone like that in your life?

Let me know in the comments down below. ๐Ÿ‘‡
