How to Focus Your Priorities When You Have Too Many Interests

I’ve always had too many interests for my own good.

If you’ve seen my Impossible List before, this probably isn’t a surprise; I want to learn how to play the piano, learn to walk a slackline, write a novel, learn how to draw, skateboard more proficiently… the list goes on.

When I walk into Barnes & Noble – which is quite often – I have a hard time figuring out whether to head first: science, biographies, world history, travel, fantasy and sci-fi, graphic novels – they all sound ridiculously interesting.
