Staying on top of client needs is like juggling bowling balls. The endless demands hurtle your way without taking a break.
In an ambitious burst of what I call "Rebekah brilliance," I decided to set some shiny bumper guards on my lane.
A "no work at night or on the weekends" kind of deal. Absolutely genius.
On the first Saturday of my new unplugged regime, I went out for family game night. But while waiting for my turn, a new client query rolled through my mind, knocking down any hopes of being present. I was so distracted calculating how to best handle it on Monday that I nearly missed the thumbhole.
That message stuck with me like that one stubborn pin that doesn't fall. It hijacked my weekend, inflating my stress levels higher than a 7-10 split crisis.
What did I learn? Even the perfect strike needs a good aim. Jotting down tasks in one place and scheduling a dedicated time to handle them can effectively act as the ultimate foundation frame. You can enjoy the game without dropping the ball on your foot.

Rebekah Radice, co-founder of BRIL.LA, has traded narcissism for purpose. When not driving growth, you'll find her tricking family into thinking she's Emeril Lagasse - likely covered in marinara. The spotlight was fun, but impact is better. These days she's using 20+ years of brand brilliance for good.
