Today I had the day off and planned to work on a few projects I have in mind. Going over the projects in the back of my mind at the beginning of the day, I had it all planned out. However, upon opening up my laptop, I found myself focusing on stuff that ultimately didn’t matter. Some examples included: This theme works, but I should find a better one This image works for this blog post, but I should find a better one Researching topics that were 10 steps beyond the one I had planned to working on today. Focusing on the wrong things and narrowing the scope down to minor details is causing me to not get what I needed to get done completed. However, at the end of the day, we’re the only ones we can blame in this industry. That’s one of the things I love about IM. I took about a 10 minute break and found myself thinking clearly. However, this issue is far too common in my daily routines. I’ve gotta learn how to shut my brain off and just get shit done. I know im not the only one who suffers from this, but I just wanted to make a rant about it. If only I would stop thinking about the “what-ifs” and take more action, I’d be much more successful in my IM career. My intuition tells me that this is much more common amongst our fellow IMers here. Anyone else have experience with this?
