This will be a short post I think. I need some advice.
Lately I have been struggling with taking action. Actually…I have always had trouble with taking action. I used to claim I was one of the most accomplished procrastinators to ever successfully complete college. Which, thinking back, is a horrible thing to be proud of!
Damn it. Had I just had the focused drive I have now! Silly thoughts, I digress.
Regardless of my past, I have worked at destroying my habit of procrastination
Here is a “short” list of the things I am currently trying to accomplish at the same time outside of my full time job:
- Learn how to code so I can build an awesome piece of software
- Build the aforementioned piece of software
- Create a successful personal development blog (a lot of to-do’s involved here)
- Write a novel (I’ve written a prelude and the first chapter)
- Build a stream of passive monthly income that surpasses my monthly expenses
- Blog more on this site
My girlfriend recently told me that if I divide my attention among all of these things, I will end up with a lot of unfinished projects. She advises that I should throw all of my attention at one thing, and then, when I have created something of value, as well as created a habit of writing/coding/etc, THEN I should consider expanding my attentions.
I think this is a good idea. I’ve also thought about choosing 2-3 of my goals and working on each of them for 30 minutes to an hour each day. I would still be consolidating focus towards a smaller amount of projects, but I wouldn’t be focusing on just one of them.
What do you guys think? How should I focus my time?
