I have so much on my plate and even more cooking up almost ready to be served. I'm sure you do as well and if you don't you should. You have to work on your dreams daily while finding room to dream up some more. I'm not talking about the big car and the even bigger house, I'm talking about all the cool shit you plan on doing to achieve those things. Those are the dreams I'm talking about. You should have plenty of them.
The problem with being a habitual dreamer is bringing those dreams to fruition and making the process apart of your reality.
And honestly, it's not as hard as you think it is. The magic necessary to bring those dreams to life is within you. Adding them onto your daily to-do list and dedicating x amount of time daily to your dreams is the only way you're gonna make this happen. It's that simple.
But you have other shit going on that's already in process that needs your attention. I understand that in fact, I know of a few things that can help you. It starts with a few questions. Ask your self:
How much time are you putting toward your independent efforts weekly?
How many ideas do you have?
Which of those ideas are already active?
Out of the inactive ideas, which ones are the most tangible?
Take the active and inactive but tangible ideas and use them to make your list. You can take the list and divide it by the time you have to work on your independent endeavors weekly. Now you know how much time you can place on each task weekly. However, if you're like me and have a volatile time schedule you can simply work on one thing in the list an hour. Depending on the length of your list you should be able to work on a single item twice a week for an hour. If you can't that means you're too ambitious and need to put an idea or two on ice.
The point is you can't dedicate too much time to one thing and you can't focus on what's working so much so that you never work on something new. What we do with our time in the present can very likely define our futures.
Planning and organizing our ambitions is the only way we can make our dreams come true.
