Get in habit of saying "no" to requests for your time more than you say "yes" and soon you'll have a lot more time to give.
If you can't say "no" then get as much time to work on project as you possibly can (and give yourself plenty of time to get it done).
4. HAVE ALL THE IDEAS YOU WANT... BUT WORK ON ONE IDEA AT A TIME
Many people tell me that they have "too many" ideas: they can't get anything done because they keep getting new ideas to work on.
The problem isn't number of ideas, it's that they're trying to work on all of them at same time. (See #2.)
You just can't do that, not if you want to get anything done. So, keep coming up with great ideas, but write them down and save them for later while you work on one idea/project at a time.
5. YOU CAN'T DO IT ALL, BUT WE JUST MIGHT
Whether it's work or a just a fun project, you improve your chances of success when you share some of workload with others.
So next time you find yourself trying to do it all, remember these few ideas and do a little less... You may just find that you actually get a lot more done in process!
