Testing my application when overloaded with work

I am catching up with posting online my articles.

So today I have discovered that my business website has been hacked and now it is necessary for me to do new web. Well... maybe not completely new because I can reuse the text and images from the other website but still I have to make a new design and use another platform ( I need to use html instead of Wordpress platform ). And this situation is kind of urgent because this is how my new and existing customers find me and make appointment with me. And because this is urgent to fix it I have to find time for doing it. It is not really that I want to do because at the moment I am busy with other tasks but I have no choice in here.

Anyway I started to work on it this morning but because there was a problem with it I started to see that I am getting frustrated. But then I remembered that I was facing this similar point last year and I know how it all ended up. So I stopped my work on the computer, I ate something and I left my home to attend one of my customers.

And when I was away I made the decision that I will not stress myself about it and I also decided that no matter what I will stick to my daily limits of how much I can work on the computer. And so when I got home I sat at the computer and I started to work on my website. I see that it will take me at least few days to do it but even if it will take me more time I will not fall into the trap of stressing myself, getting frustrated, pushing myself to work till late at night over the limits of my body until I am totally exhausted and I am not going to rush because I want to be done with it as soon as possible. I will stick to my plan and I will do as much as I can within those working time limits.

So now I can say that this was kind of a test or an exam of how I apply myself in this type of situation. Last year I pushed all the limits, I worked a lot and eventually I ended up being sick. Now I do not want to make the same mistake.

So I guess that my self-application and self-correction was appropriate and I guess that I have passed the exam.
