So you’ve got about a million ideas of things you want to do with your life. A gajillion interests that are pulling you in different directions. You want to travel! And knit! And you love taking pictures! And you love starting businesses! And you love educating yourself on the newest trends in hipster fashion!
Which should you pursue?
How are you supposed to start when you don’t even know where you’re going?
I have two answers for you, both super simple, and both totally contradictory. You have been warned.
Option 1: Just Pick
Just pick one and START. Seriously. Just pick. The more time you spend in your head analyzing it, trying to make the decision about the exact perfect one, the more time you’re NOT out there doing it. Which is the whole point, right? Nothing is life or death, not decision is forever. Pick the one you feel most compelled to pick, and see where it takes you. Life is all trial and error, and you’ll ever know how it will go til you try.
Option 2: Don’t pick
Don’t pick. Seriously. Don’t pick. Why should you have to choose? Find ways to do them all. One might be a small side project. One might be a full fledged career. One might just be a hobby. Some might help make you money, some might not. But there is no reason why you can’t just continue to do them all and, similar to option #1, see where it leads you.
The longer you stay in indecision, the longer you’re not actually doing anything.
Don’t get stuck in the trap! The best way to get started, is to just get started.
Do something. Anything. And trust that you’ll know what your next move is.
