Too many projects
Man, you have to love when technology leaves you high and dry. I have been attempting to update the blog since about 6 PM. Between my terrible Internet and my computer just not liking my website editor, I had no choice but to try this on my phone. My phone, I might add, that is having issues.
So even though I’m feeling better, I’m still going to have to make this a shorter blog post. It’s getting late and I’m frankly too frustrated to come up with anything amazing after spending, oh I don’t know, three hours trying to post.
For today, I want to talk about projects. How many is too many? I mean, I really like to keep myself busy. Even today, I came across something mentioned in passing by a friend and now I feel a strong inclination to try to make it happen. It’s not as though I don’t have enough on my plate already, it’s just that I love engaging in new things. I love creating new things.
I think the thing I like most is the challenge of a new project. Sometimes when you start something new, there is this moment of wonder where you ponder all the possibilities. You try to fix in your mind all the ways that you can make something come to fruition. I think that’s part of the fun for me, especially since I don’t have particularly amazing equipment for filming, writing, art, or anything else, really. It’s almost a challenge to see if I can use my limited resources and make something that is still impressive. Or at the very least satisfactory.
But how do I know when I’ve got too much on my plate? Honestly, are usually have to wait for someone to point it out. Usually it’s my lovely wife. She puts up with a lot of my dreaming and drifting. When I offer a new project, are usually run it past her first just to see if she thinks it’s doable and if it’s worth my time. I know that I should probably set aside when she gives me the “Look”.
so what then? Do I simply let it fade into the ether? Well, as long as you don’t tell anyone, I’m pretty much like everyone else. I just put it on the shelf, make a few notes to myself, and when time opens up, and my wife forget so I brought it up the first time, I pitch it anew. And you know, it’s not just a matter of deception or anything like that, read discovering something you are passionate about but couldn’t do at the time is invigorating. I should know. I rediscovered my old projects all the time.
Don’t forget to be awesome.
