Hi all. I have a question I need help with:
I have been lucky in that I have had some time off, a good rest. Now it's time to get cracking again. I am not under any pressure to get anything done, so I can choose whatever project ideas I want to run with. I work alone at the moment so its small business stuff. I have several ideas that are all pretty good. I will have to start from a standing start so I have to beat the inertia which is a tough part in itself! I think maybe I have taken too much time off. From experience I know that the hardest part of any project is getting started!
Well Say I have four projects, two I have to start from scratch and two are already there, part done but waiting for pushing further. There is bigger long term potential in the two that have not been started so I would like to jump on them. But there is immediate returns on the two that have been started. If I was dependant on immediate returns the decision would be 50% easier but I'm not.
I want to get them all rolling but this is impossible as my focus is being pulled all over the show. Should I forget three of them for a period* of time and focus on just one for a period* of time or should I try and set say a day in the week for each project and jump from one to the other throughout the week ie "multitask" or forget three entirely and focus on the best one totally?
period* when multitasking what periods for on and off the projects.
If you can figure out what I'm driving at in a general way I would love to hear what advice you can offer?
