Facing Overcommitment / Overburdening - Forecasts are Inaccurate

Not too long ago, in mid February, I said that I found my true limit on the number of commitments (with consideration to the depth of each commitment) I can take up at each time.
As with all things in life, things change and are unpredictable. The degree of commitments change- some increase while some decrease. Whether it's due to other people or the nature of the commitment, it's difficult to accurately forecast things.
I now encounter a net increase in the degree of my commitments and feel completely overburdened.
- Look to drop some or suspend some (suspended two)
- Delegate tasks away (sent most of one off)
- Seriously get enough rest... not sleeping is taking a time debt
- Be honest with myself with how much I can complete each day
How do others deal with overcommitment/overburdening?
