If you have been following my blog and projects for a while, you likely noticed me constantly struggle to find the balance between focus and diversification.
One side of me wants to continue going wild — building, shipping, publishing as much as I can. I am always working on new projects, trying out new things, and having new experiences.
I have learned so much this way.
But who becomes successful through multi-tasking?
Really, no one.
I believe that to be successful long term you have to focus. Really focus. I do not think it is really possible to have long term success juggling tons of ideas and things at once.
But am I ready to work on “just” one thing?
I am not sure.
The hesitation makes me feel like this diversification approach is actually better for me in the short term, but I do realize that, eventually, I will have to go heads down and solve a big and important problem.
All of this “on the side” stuff may be fun and give me short term validation…but is there more to it?
