Enjoy The Journey
I have that same problem. Too much to do, too little time. I get stressed out because so many people depend on me for so many different things. I'm the employee. The dad. The husband. The Secretary. The writer. The Founder. The curator. The speaker. The idea guy. The educator. And every so often, the officiant. And every once in awhile I drop the ball. Not often, but it happens. And I get all ticked off, because I have so much on my plate, and I get annoyed that I don't have more help in these things I've taken on of my own free will and accord.
People can't grow unless they get out of that comfort zone. Get involved. Take a few risks. Do something that really matters--that means something to you. Make a few mistakes, but enjoy the journey. And when you find that passion, and you begin finding yourself with work to do, enjoy the work, and the fact you have the opportunity, and that people are depending you. Take every task seriously, and try your best. Don't take something on if you know you can't do a good job with it--if you're not going to do it, then don't raise your hand. But if you do raise your hand, you'll find greater pleasure from the work, than you'll ever find from relaxing at home on the couch.
Life is short--it's never too late to make your mark. Make it count.
