A Dilettante?

  • Listening: Rush Chronicles
I think that I have figured out what my problem is.
I am a dilettante. I am interested in many things and spend time on many things, but never enough time on one thing to get really good at it.

I play the piano & guitar a little.
I play the flute even less well.
I sew a little.
I scrapbook on occasion.
I write when I feel like it.
I dabble in genealogy.
I play tennis a little. I do pilates a little.
I work my business but not consistently enough to be really good.

I keep a reading diary and in the past month I have read all or part of books on the following subjects or of the following types:

In order of quantity:

Business-related self-improvement
Mystery Fiction
Genealogical research
English grammar & usage
Spy fiction
Renaissance Art
Beauty & body image
Historical fiction
Science fiction

I think I need focus on a couple of things. I just have to figure out what they are....

This is me too! I tend to concentrate very hard on one thing for a short time, and then something else comes and captures my attention. I'm so fickle. :P

Yeah, me too.

I'm really kind of surprised that I'm still in the same business after almost three years. I'm even more excited about it that I have been since the first few months. That tells me something. :)

Mrs. Me accuses me of being adult ADD or ADHD, so I need to get checked out and see if I have an excuse for similar habits.

I've been diagnosed with ADD. The doctor says my coffee is self-medication.

So maybe I have an excuse.:P
