Sometimes you gotta put a plate down

Have you ever heard the expression “spinning too many plates” or “juggling too many balls”?

They refer to a person taking on too much with the fear that something may go wrong if they continue to spin or juggle.

So the smart thing to do is put one down so you can manage the others without the fear of being burned out or living in a sense of anxiety.

Over the last few months, I’ve taken on a few more projects and now I realise I’m spinning too many plates and I need to create change so I’ve come up with a foolproof plan!

I’m aware I have followers of my blog and I realise I’ve written a load of content that has value, in fact I’ve created 120 blog posts! WOW!

So what do I do? Can I simply leave these posts behind and move on?

Yes I can!

So how can I be so confident in my decision?

One of the new projects I’ve taken on lives at a new website called purposeful thinking which can be found here.

My purpose is to help people but I also have to be helping myself and so by removing this site and it’s services, I free up valuable time.

I don’t know how long the process takes and it feels like I’m trying to split up from a girl but not sure if it’s the right thing to do, but I have to make a choice.

Maybe I’ll see you on the other side but if not, I wish you the best
