While success usually requires a complete focus on one idea, sometimes it takes time to find one single idea to dedicate all your time to.
If you’re struggling to find your one idea, it might worth it to try as many ideas as you can over a period of time to see what you care about the most.
That’s the rut I’ve been stuck in. I have so many ideas and it’s simply just time to try them all to see which one sticks and works. I’ve focused on single ideas at a time for years now, and it’s just time to mix it up.
I’ve listed out over 50 ideas I want to try throughout the year just to see and figure out which ones I want to pursue.
There are probably so many things you always wanted to try or wanted to pursue, but you kept putting it off. No more. If you feel stuck, maybe it’s now the time to try as many things as possible just to mix it up. You might even fall completely in love with one of your ideas and you’ll discover it was something you should have been doing for a long time.
I’ve always been a big believer in trying things before you know you’re passionate about them. When you’re good at things, you find passion. You can’t think your way to passion. It’s not a logical game.
There are some questions you can ask yourself to figure out what you should try.
- What did you love doing when you were young?
- What have you always wanted to try?
- What would you do with your time if there was no one to judge you?
- What do you keep putting off?
- What do you find yourself day dreaming about?
List as many as you want. It’s up to you if you want to cut the list down or just go all-in and start checking them off as you go.
Stop thinking start doing
The biggest hurdle most people face is how often they think about every damn thing. They want to analyze and talk themselves out of things. That’s how they got stuck in the first place.
