Countdown to Lunch

I've been coordinating ORWA's annual Valentine's Day Lunch and I've hit a point of exhaustion.  This is a pretty typical cycle for me.  I start off enthusiastic and then nerves start to set in.  I get anxious about whether or not the event will be a success; will I be able to do the work; will people be pleased with what I've done.

At first, I can channel the anxiety into the tasks which need to be done.  Which ends up being pretty productive. 

But now almost everything is done that I need to do in advance.  So I have no focus for the anxious energy.  Channelling it into other projects doesn't work.  I'm starting to wear down and wish I could just be done with the whole thing.  Which isn't a great mindset for having fun at the event.

I really need to find a better method for dealing with these things.  Or at least stop volunteering for extra work.

I'll let you all know how it works out.
