How to Avoid Shiny Object Syndrome | #11


When you’re working on your primary goal, project, or focus, it’s inevitable that some new idea comes to mind and distracts you. You have a choice… follow the shiny object down a path of abandoned projects, or stay the course and ignore the promise of the shiny thing. What if there was a middle ground? Make a shiny object list! In this episode I teach you how to honor your brilliant new ideas without losing steam on your main goal. 

Check out my Shiny Object List blog for screenshots of how I organize my Shiny Object List in Trello.
