|Find Your Passions to Find Yourself|
Adopting a self-check system can help balance a persons drive to compete including self-assessment questions like: am I doing what I love? is this feeding me? is it fulfilling? In this way you will be clarifying your priorities and possibly going so far as to outline the specific steps needed to manage your life and activities. Assess your goals. Along the way you will organize yourself and also organize your life in a way that better enables you to fill you free time with productive activities, even if they may seem peripheral to your big objective. Part of this is knowing and being able to identify activities (even ones that are not obvious) that support your chosen goal. A corollary of this is automating as much as possible anything that you don't need to take an active role in completing for your own benefit. This can include things like cleaning, cooking, paying bills, etc. There are many services and people who can help you take yourself out of direct involvement in these extraneous chores. On the flip side consider freely offering your time in ways that contribute to your enrichment but may be helping to automate the lives of other less dedicated to your particular pursuit. Working as a connector in a field that allows for frequent interaction may be the best way of accomplishing this.

|Go With the Flow|
Breakdown projects into tasks. Consider the costs, the scope, and the time commitment of the goal. Delegate. Prepare for disruption and change. Don't panic. Stick to the plan and avoid scrambling to make up for shortcomings. Remember your own and others success stories. Realize that you can't do everything. Avoid multitasking unless you are really good at it. Reach out to others and ask for help! Communicate. Don't allow your ego to get in the way. Take frequent breaks. Stick with the program and don't lose focus. Get it done! Remember the big picture. Be proud of what you do accomplish. And again make sure that you finish what you start.
