I have a serious problem. Seriously. Ok so it's not so serious, but it's damn annoying.
I seem to have gotten myself into a serious funk since I got back from Greece, and the sum of it is... I can't make up my mind.
In the past fortnight I have...
- Started a foodie blog
- Re-designed my personal blog
- Worked on my current novel
- Started a new novel
- Wrote a sex article
- Wrote a magazine quiz
- Wrote a song
- Sent off a load of Greetings Cards Submissions
- Thought of and researched three (rather good but extremely different) business ideas
- Looked into moving abroad
- Attempted professional photography
This is not all I've done obviously, but I can't help looking into each of these things as viable career options. I just cannot make up my mind about what I want to do with my life. I get so excited and involved about one project, and then suddenly I'm off on a totally different tangent, and the old project is left to go mouldy until another week later when I decide it's exciting again.
The problem with this is that, inevitably ,I end up doing so many little different things, that I can't even finish one. I've been told to stick with the thing that truly gives me butterflies, but they all do. At least for a couple of weeks each anyway...
It's embarrassing, and I'm sorry to sound off, but if anyone has any advice to help me curb my utter unfocused-ness I would be very grateful.
On a good note - in the midst of researching how to set up a trampoline business, or become a spy, and other such nonsense, I've found this really brilliant personal development website by a guy called Steve Pavlina. You've probably heard of him - he's pretty famous, and he's been around for a while, but man, the guy is clever. It's basically LOAD'S of content about improving yourself as a person, without all the wishy washiness of the usual self help books. If you visit it - be careful, it's totally addictive.
Anyway, I'm off to look into the feasibility of training to become an airline pilot...
Oh and, I also wanted to say big congrats to my brilliantly lovely internet mate Keris Stainton and her family, on the (about bloody time!) birth of her baby boy - Joe!!
