I have a lot going on. I have
– a full time job
– a start-up business
– a blog
– a social life (well sort of)
– a house to run
Sometimes I think that maybe I need to pick just one thing and focus on doing that, and I bet one or two of you have thought that too.
The problem is I have a very short attention span and unless I’m forced to concentrate on one thing I tend to flit and change my mind on an hourly basis. Over breakfast I want to develop my career, at lunch I want to be a blogger and by dinner time I’m wanting to do my wedding business full time.
But do I really have to chose? Maybe I have bought into this ‘superwoman’ thing where you have to be super successful at one thing rather than just do a few things you like, just because you want to.
I know a lot of people have done full-time jobs around their own businesses but does it always have to be with the view that you will leave the day job? Do you need that drive in order to make your own thing work? I don’t know and right now I don’t feel like I want to make that decision.
I don’t feel like I have the time to devote to anything wholly so dipping in and out of projects keeps me interested. Maybe this looks unprofessional but I don’t profess to be a professional, just a keen amateur.
So have you had to make this kind of decision and what helped you decide? Or did you make the decision not to decide and see how things shake out over time? Or are you facing this decision too and don’t know what to do either? I’d love to hear your thoughts or advice on this one.
