There are more shiny objects than ever. That unwatched snapchat story, the twitter notification, your crammed inbox. They’re all just sitting on your phone, trying to get your attention.
The same goes for ideas. There are thousands of ideas floating around. A lot of them are good ones, too. But that doesn’t mean you should give in.
The hardest thing to do is to see through the noise and decide what’s actually worth your focus. For eight months I had one goal: publish my first book. I released it about a month ago and now that my head is up, I can see all the shiny objects again.
There are countless ideas that I feel compelled to pursue, but I know that spreading thin is not the best use of my scarce time.
It’s time to pick a new goal and block out the shiny objects again.
