Have a list of projects, but focus on maximum two at the time

Hi guys,

Today I would like to explain you one of my 2020 resolutions. It might seem obvious for some of you, others might be thinking why this kind of resolution? So let me explain you what have made me to make this decision.

If you have read my oldest post, you might realised that I’ve been trying to get a lot of things at the same time. Because of this my to-do list has grown to huge sizes. There was no chance to complete even half of the task I had, although I haven’t got a child at the time. It was just too many things I’ve been working on.

And the biggest problem was that I still kept having new ideas and wanted to incorporate them in my over filled schedule. There was always something I potentially could do. The only problem was time, so I kept ending up not focusing on any of my projects properly and not getting anything done. I’ve always had the feeling that I will miss great opportunity, if I will not at least try. And this circle was going on continuously.

That’s why one of my New Year resolutions is to have a list of projects, but focus on two at the time. This way, I will not forget about any ‘great’ idea, but I will have to complete at least these, which might be useful or provide my development. When I complete one thing (or after three monts I’ll decide that it wasn’t the best of the ideas), I’ll pick another project to focus on.

At the moment, I am working on two projects: I am setting up my YouTube channel (I know, I keep talking about it for a long time, but now you know why it never worked) and I work on my app (well, actually it will be just a website at first; as it will start running, I will work on a mobile version of it).

Having just two important things, I can each day include at least a small task bringing me closer completing them (and I can actually manage to get these tasks done). This small change has made me much less stressed and motivated to work towards my goals.

And new ideas? There are plenty of them. But now they are out of my mind in my bullet journal waiting for their turn.

With this thought I would like to finish this post. I wish you a very productive day and I’ll see you in my next post.
