If you are convinced that you need to focus, but still cannot do it — this post is for you. I've read a ton of articles, watched a lot of long videos on why it is important to focus, and they made sense to me. However, I, unicorn who loves doing a lot of diverse things, never was able to actually choose one thing and do it for prolonged period of time, therefore I never achieved any level of mastery.
It's easy to say that you need to choose one thing and focus on it when your stuff is already sorted out. People who say such things forgot how they achieved it, and they don't realize everybody has different experiences. How can an individual who was doing a bunch of different things for 15, 20, 30, or even more years just give everything up and pick one thing?
Articles and videos would tell you everything except one thing: you need to learn to focus. Self-discipline, organization, focus and concentration don't come to you in a day! It's like expecting a fireman to become a computer programmer in one day, or going to the gym once to grow some muscles — not likely to happen!
If you are interested in a lot of different things, finding your passion can be a difficult task. And you don't have to do it in one step. Analyze your interests, reflect on the activities you perform, and slowly focus more and more precisely. Just like training in a gym, acquiring a new mentality, requires training too. Practice and consistency are the key.
