I was meeting with a super bright friend the other day. While holding down a full-time job and being a good dad, he has four other side projects going on. Yet he was really frustrated because nothing was completed. Everything was is a state of “almost done, but not quite”.
What he realized (which actually wasn’t a huge to surprise to either of us) is that he has too much noise, too many competing distractions to really succeed at anything.
His next step is to trim his list of four down to no more than two. A great start – which if he sticks to it, will increase his chances for success.
