    Too many ideas… definitely something I’m struggling with! I really liked both point 5s, those are definitely the things I’ll focus on when I am once again paralyzed with too may possible routes to take 🙂 great post!

      Thanks Sieb! People who are drawn to creative work are by their nature “ideas people” so you’re definitely not alone in struggling with this!

    This is such a great post. I ALWAYS have more ideas than time or energy to do them.

    I especially like #3 – even though I have a list of things I “should” do, focusing on my values really eliminates many of those ideas (or just puts them on the Someday/Maybe list), so I can truly do those few things that matter to me. Thanks!

    This is the story of my life. I’ve found the best way to handle this is to follow the low-hanging fruit path because once I get going I’ll knock through the idea list pretty fast…or figure out if an idea isn’t going to work out. Also, I’ve noticed that the longer I put off starting an idea the less likely I am to enjoy it. Usually those ideas that make you want to work immediately are the ones worth pursuing. Using that threshold can help narrow down the focus too.
