Finding my limit

In these next four weeks, work is going to push me more than I have been pushed in a long time. Don’t get me wrong. I have stayed busy most days. The kicker is the added responsibilities of my new role and new client.

I’m waiting to hear back on a proposal that I officially onboard with the new client where I was supposed to only be the account manager. This is out of necessity because the original resources that were designated for this project have changed, but the deliverables and timeline have not. I’m losing two part-time people, and it’s late in the game to interview candidates and present them and use up at least another week or more to get them access. I’m a somewhat known quantity, as much as you can know someone in a week and a half.

I don’t see any other way to rescue this project and ensure that we don’t have a blow-up. I don’t know how I’m going to pull off the rare trifecta of consulting for three clients simultaneously, but I do know it’s going to take a lot out of me.
