If you have 827 things to focus on, which do you focus on?

If you have 827 things to focus on, which do you focus on?

I think that’s mathematically impossible to focus on 827 things.

It might be impossible to focus on 2 things. See: When everything is highlighted, nothing is highlighted.

There’s just too much to do. I know it, I free admit it. So what do you do? Do you just:

  1. Hunker down and begin where you begin?
  2. Formulate a strategic plan?
  3. Run for the hills?
  4. Have another glass of wine?
  5. Deal with it tomorrow?
  6. All of the above.
  7. None of the above.

Or is #6 the same as doing nothing? It’s odd. I have so much to do and yet I know I’ll get it done. I also know, maybe it’s even subconsciously, what’s important and I do get those things done. I will run (not walk) to the post office to make sure my passport application is mailed on the day it needs to be sent but I’ll be absently-mindedly forgetful about something probably equally as important–but apparently not as important on my own internal barometer.

I think the answer might be to just focus on one thing: the first thing. Get that one done and then move onto the next.

I don't like to call them excuses. They're priorities. With a handful of exceptions, we usually have a choice in our actions. They just need to be prioritized.
