You know what it means to give something your best effort. Right now you may feel like you`re bailing out a leaky rowboat with a teaspoon, but take heart -- the Sun`s coming out and will help you with your task. If pride or something equally mundane won`t let you stop with these tasks, the least you can do is take a day off. A short break refreshes you and brings perspective. Next time when someone asks you for a favor, you can remind yourself that `no` is a complete sentence.
