The past two years have been crazy. In 2010, I graduated from college and my now-husband and I purchased our home. In 2011, I started a master's degree and we got married. This year, I started a business and I'm in the process of finishing up my master's degree program (which will be completed in December).
The problem obviously isn't my need to be MORE productive, as I continue to accomplish things on a daily basis. My problem now is that I've gotten so used to this lifestyle that I find it hard not to obsess over my to-do list items, and I actually find myself getting angry if I don't complete items at the end of the day. I often find myself not fully experiencing life because all I'm doing is thinking about what I have to do (for example, I'll forget entire conversations because I was thinking about other things).
Not to mention the fact that between my undergrad degree, my master's degree, and starting my business, I feel that my husband has been severely neglected. I know that snuggling on the couch watching TV is considered "quality time", but considering the roll that I'm on, I also consider that "wasted time". We go out almost every Saturday night, so I feel that we do still have fun together. I just feel bad when I'm doing things on my laptop and he's simply watching TV. Maybe the problem is that I'm over-productive and he's under-productive, and it makes me feel guilty. I don't know.
Does anybody have advice on how to stop this madness?
