Too Many Ideas, Not Enough Time
Date 7/13/2008    Tags Rant, Development    (0)

I've got a million and one ideas of things I'd like to work on and not half enough time to do them all. Maybe a million is an exaggeration, but certainly I have quite a few. I have about four side projects that I'm actively working on and a bunch more planned.

Between working a full-time job and family responsibilities, my time to work on my ideas (the great ones and the insane ones) is far from what I need to truly flesh them out. I simply need more time, that's the bottom line.

The only real solution I can think of to this problem would be to quit my day job or quit sleeping altogether. Unfortunately that isn't in the cards right now, I have far too many bills to pay to set out on my own right now (plus I enjoy my day job as a C# programmer extraordinaire) and sleep has proven to be somewhat of a necessity despite the wondrous advances in caffeine technologies these recent years.

So for now, I've got a bunch of half-finished ideas that may or may not ever see the light of day. Part of my problem too is that when I come up with a great new idea, I get so involved in the early stages of development that I completely neglect projects that are a lot closer to completion. I try not to, but when I have a new idea I just get so excited that I can't bring myself to work on the much more mundane tasks required at the middle to end stages of a project.

My greatest dream right now (besides stumbling upon an unlimited supply of Pez) would be for one of these ideas to become insanely popular (maybe even get rich and buy an NBA franchise like Mark Cuban did, who is basically living my dream now). Then I would have the financing backing to see through all my crazy projects and maybe even hire some help to get them done faster (and use my NBA team to promote them). Of course the number of people that this actually happens to is few and far between, so there is a possibility it will never happen for me, but that uncertainly isn't gonna stop me from trying.
Ain't nothin' gonna break my break my stride,
nobody's gonna slow me down, oh no,
I've got to keep on movin'.
Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride,
I'm never gonna walk such ground, oh no,
I've got to keep on movin'.
You might be saying to yourself just now, "oh no, he didn't just go 'Men at Work' on us"... yes, yes I did.0" st
