Oh, boy can I relate to this!
I'm very much this type of person. The knowledge-junkie. That's me. It's even one of my major goals in life. I love to learn new stuff.
I like to build and plan my projects in my head, but then I always fail to follow through. In some ways I feel like it is escalating. But perhaps that is because I'm starting to notice it since I got into personal development.
I have visions of how to furnish the apartment I live in. I have written plans for different 30-day trials. I have unfinished sculptures and paintings waiting to be started. I have exams that I didn't pass. All this usually just mounts up, my refudge is to read more about personal development or learn more about art theory instead. Buy some new books and read them. Start up new projects in my mind and the spiral twist downward again.
Somehow I'm just now realizing that this must be my first 30-day trial I finish. Start doing stuff. This got me thinking. Anybody have any good suggestions on how I should start? This is a Very strongly ingraned pattern in me, so it won't be a breeze. I don't want to plan too much though that would just reinforce the pattern again. Just solve simple stuff for 30-days perhaps? Keep count on how much I do each day then prioritise important tasks?
