Is this a possibility or a distraction?

This cool opportunity presents itself to you. It is clearly different than the focus and goals you set for yourself. But yet looking back, many of  your biggest breakthroughs came in a form that was different than what you expected.  So is this a possibility to be explored- or a distraction to be avoided?

My current solution involves assessing the new opportunity in terms of where it will likely take you. Then you can tie that back to, "Does the place it takes you further what you have focused on?

If it does not, and you need to let it pass, it still could be slated as your next project or focus. Yes, that does mean you need to complete the one that you have already committed yourself to first.

Just the other day a cool new possibility presented itself to me. It was indirectly related to my focus–but clearly outside of it. I was seriously tempted. When I experienced the disappointment of choosing to pass, I reminded myself that I can do it, I just have to finish the project I am in first.

So the possibility or idea may be great, and it may just be a matter of timing. Of course when our ego attaches to a possibility, it wants it right now.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless
think about if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your
posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of the best in its niche.
Good blog!
