Imagine if 20 years ago you were a genius who had the idea of starting up Google, and Amazon, and Facebook. You just invented three of the best business ideas of the last century, and if you had started any one of them you could now be worth billions.
But if you were determined to do all these simultaneously you would be absolutely nowhere.
It is not enough to have great ideas. Lots of people have great ideas. The problem is that too many great ideas cancel each other out.
The more directions you are being pulled in, the less distance you will travel.
I have found that writing down my goals and consciously deciding on what is most important and ONLY focusing on those goals has made me more successful.
You can’t be everything to everyone, but you can be something to someone.
Ps: I came across an article a few weeks back talking about Warren Buffet’s strategy for goal setting and prioritisation. Check it out as it as I believe it adds to your post
