Projects projects projects

Doing too many things at once: Something I have an opinion about.
I believe, besides it being childish, idealistic, and foolish, that it's REALLY GREAT. It's so much fun!
First of all, it's an interesting challenge to see if the things that drop off automatically (since, obviously we can't juggle a zillion balls forever, or at least I can't) are the things that I'm naturally not so interested in, or the things that require more work, or the things that take more time, or the things that I AM actually interested in but realize are of lesser importance. This is really helping me figure out my true level of innate selfishness.
Another reason about why it's great is...for some reason, the more projects you have, the more likely you are to complete all of them. I truly believe this. In my brain, and as far as my reasoning will take me (which is not very far), I'd say this is because there's all of a sudden, as a result of so many things to do, more emphasis on completing the project rather than starting a new one. So, inasmuch as I am always starting new projects, I have an increased panic about finishing the old ones and getting them out of the way. This is sort of the cycle that moves me to accomplishment-by-desperation.
Also, accomplishment is one HUGE shot in the leg. Bouncing from one success to another becomes the easiest little dance in the world. And, whereas dancing is often tiring after a while, this is INVIGORATING. It's like, the truest rawest form of life. (For us SINGLES anyway.)
So PTL!!! Hop hop on those projects, people!!!

I tend to find myself doing nothing when I have too much to do. I like to meditate on what I'm not doing and devise clever ways to not be in that situation. I don't know what that makes me.
