  • Hi Reagan,
    I love your podcast. It’s right up my alley of things I love to read and think about. I, too, am guilty of overcommitment at times. Somehow, I think that I can keep expanding my limits on what I can do because I have improved on my own systems. It seems that the solution is to accept own limits instead.
    I’ve noticed in myself that another factor that leads to overcommitment is a lack of patience. Sometimes, I bite off more than I can chew because I am eager (and impatient) to see the end result come to fruition. This, too, can be tempered by humble acceptance of our limits and God’s plan for us each day.
