What do you do when things gets out of hand, and you desperately need to get them back on track? As of late, I’ve been worrying about a lot of things, making plans, and hoping that they will turn out fine in the end, regardless of the faulty… processes, because I’m terrible… very terrible at multi-tasking.
I’ve always been a horrible muti-tasker, and I couldn’t really do many things at one time.I have to concentrate on doing one thing at a time, or… I’m afraid… I’ll screw things up, and things will get pretty ugly.
When I was still reporting, I was practically struggling, because as a reporter, multi-tasking is one of the basic skill needed for news digging process. I wasn’t a good multi-tasker. My former editor could vouch for that, but thank God, I was known for being rather attentive and assertive when it comes to hunting down news or interviewing. I made a pretty good investigative journalist to the point when I resigned, they still persuade me to come back… to this very day. Perhaps… one day I’ll go back into reporting.
But I am not quite sure if I really want to, despite of the adrenaline rush it gives me as investigative journalism in Malaysia has become rather ugly and horrid…with all of those nasty murders, conspiracy and whatnot.
Back then when I was practicing, it wasn’t as bad, and with the things that’s going on lately, I tend to wonder if I decide to go back into reporting, staying in the gossip column would be better? I don’t know…for what it’s worth, freelancing and being a writer is much more fulfilling than practically living in the newsroom or running around for news. LOL. (Sorry boss… kakaka…I want to ‘kill’, not ‘be killed’. But I’ll let you know if I decided to go on suicide mission again)
Anyway, I’m really straying… what I meant to talk about is the things that you do when things gets out of hand and your plans is thwarted. What do you do, actually? When things gets out of hand on my side of the world… I would make a to-do list, and work on them one by one, not simultaneously. I can never do things simultaneously, because I only have a pair of hand and only one brain to control my movements.
So… tell me… humour me… what do you do… when things gets out of hand on your side of the world?
Cleffairy: *sigh* Things never go as plans but thank God I’ve always have back up and 2nd and 3rd plans in case my 1st plan is ruin!
