Am I Spreading Myself Too Thin?
to spread yourself too thin
to try to do too many things at the same time, so that you cannot give enough time or attention to any of them.
– Cambridge Online Dictionary
Well. Am I?
This question is one I’ve been asking myself repeatedly, as of late. In fact, I’m having a rather difficult time with it. After all… At the moment I am working on quite a few separate projects; four, to be precise. The Lace & Lilacs Podcast, An E-Magazine, Lace & Lilacs Design, &, of course, this ‘lil blog. On top of that, I am honing my photography skills and preparing for a life-altering move. I’ll soon be attending college full time, too.
I suppose my excuse for these various undertakings has always been this: I am young, I don’t entirely know what career I’d like to pursue, and I’m dabbling in a bit of this and that. Trying to find my way.
But am I right to do this? Should I instead be investing all my time in a specific niche; in just one venture? I know if forced to select a single topic, it would certainly be photography. I’ve chosen it as my major for this reason, of course. But I love writing so very much, too, and experimenting with basic design is another little hobby of mine.
I guess I’d just like to hear your thoughts on all this. Am I being absolutely ridiculous, attempting everything at once?
