On focusing your time and efforts

I enjoy doing a lot of things. From simply being a businessman, teaching web and media, doing consulting work, developing websites for clients to being a great guy and helping people with their web and tech related problems.

What I’ve found, would you believe it, is that it really is time to focus. This is no business driven decision. This is a health decision. You see, there comes a time when you have to realize that despite all of these things without a problem being doable in the amount of time you are given each day, each comes with its own sets of accountability and pressure.

The problem is that as this pressure on you builds up, it quickly becomes too much, as each area explodes at, interestingly enough, the very same time.

There is a rule as much in business as in life known as the 80/20 rule. 80% of the results comes from 20% of the efforts. Realizing that this holds true in most situations, you also realize when it is time to focus.

Unfortunately, giving up things you love doing is not an easy task. The jury is still out on exactly how I am going to tackle this, but trust me, there is a limit to how much you want to do, long term.
