When you are hit with a surge of motivation and excitement about everything, there is a very high chance you will try and do everything – and we all know that all that leads to is half-finished ideas and burn out.
At the beginning of this year I chose ‘prioritize’ as one of my words to focus on throughout the years. I think that in one sense I have followed this; I have focused on my health like I never have before, making sure I rest and eat correctly, and it seems to be paying off. But I think I have left everything else in my life to fend for itself. So now I am realising it is time to work out what I really want to do this year. I need to work out what project is the top of my list and go after it; that is the only way I am going to avoid having a terrible crash.
Of course, that’s easier said than done. I am so full of ideas and hopes and dreams and I want to bring them all to life right now. I simply have to remember that focusing on one at a time doesn’t mean I can ignore the other ideas or that I’ll have never have a chance to focus on them, after all, I’m still at the beginning of my life.
How do you prioritize? Any tips you can share to help me work out what dream to chase down right now?
