I talk to a lot of creatives.
I have yet to find one that only works on one project at a time.
I am sure they’re out there, but I have yet to find one.
Like a 4-leaf clover, I know they exist but haven’t found one myself.
That means you’re most likely in a similar situation as me. Switching between tasks, thriving on juggling several projects, and changing directions. While you get a rush from jumping between projects, it isn’t efficient.
As a creative, efficiency isn’t the ultimate goal. Yet, the more you get done, the more you can create. This is something I currently realize as I am in my third month of blogging full-time.
Here is my challenge to you. Take the next two weeks and focus on only one or maybe two projects. If you get inspired to work on something else, just take notes but do not switch gears to work on it.
Focus! Focus! Focus!
