Figuring Out What is Next
What do you think?
I’ve noticed a theme of people understanding what they’re good at, and focusing on doing that specific thing.
Whether they are a business coach, a photographer, a developer or anything in between, focus is key. At the same time I’ve been observing this, I’ve been feeling pulled in many different directions.
I am working on a bunch of interesting projects and causes I care about, but I’m lacking focus and cohesion. I’m contributing value in different ways across all the organizations I’m working with and it feels scattered.
When I wake up, it’s unclear what to prioritize. I kind of go where the wind takes me, which is nice at some level, but I’m not being very intentional or purposeful in anything.
Life moves in seasons. For a couple years I focused primarily on the Entrepreneurship Club and growing the innovation ecosystem on University of Delaware’s campus. After that, I focused on writing and launching my book. After that I focused on building Dual School.
And right now I’m in between seasons. I’m not sure where to focus next.
Part of me wants to write another book. Another part of me wants to join a small company. Another part of me wants to start a company.
Right now I think I’m going to take some time and let it come to me. I’m giving myself a few months to try a bunch of different things and explore.
I don’t have any clear answers yet, but I’m curious what you think. Have you been in a spot like this? What did you do?
