I wonder if it would help me actually get things done if I chose one project (FSVO "project") per month and spent that month's free time mostly doing that project and not thinking about other projects. For example, I could spend a month on French. I'd do all sorts of French things that month, but I wouldn't worry about becoming perfect at it. If I'm only doing it for a month, I can't become perfect at it, so maybe I wouldn't worry so much about it. And, if I change things every month, I can keep things in motion, keep things new, so that I don't get bored. This would allow me to focus on one thing without worrying that I'm neglecting other things, because it's part of the designed framework to work on one thing per month. I find that I work a lot better with some sort of direction, and I'm wondering if some self-imposed direction like this would be helpful.
I just thought of this idea today, so I'm not sure what I think about it. Does anyone have any thoughts on it? Has anyone tried anything similar? I just really need to do something, so I'm trying to think outside the box.
