    The problem with wanting to try a lot of things.

    Discussion started by The Leader - Mar 12, 2005

    Is I never have time to really really go deep into a certain subject. This has always plagued me when it comes to art. Canvases, trains, beats, poetry, attempting to write short stories, wanting to make a low budget movie. I push things aside way too much. And I want to do everything at once. It's fucking terrible. Does anyone else suffer from this same problem? This probably isn't thread worthy. I'm just getting really pissed at my inability to focus on one form for a long enough while to satisfy myself. I always go "oh shit," and look the other direction as something else pops it's head in.


    Also, does anyone have a working copy of Reason they want to send me? :):):)

    i blame it on my ADD that I can't concentrate on one thing for a super long time and just from thing to thing. In doing so I have learned that even while I might be paying more attentiont os omthing else to still keep myself doing something related to the other things I have going on and that way though I may not be progressing I am not falling backwards in it either, it that makes any sense.

    thats just my two cents on it

    I often find myself in the same situation, and me being in school makes in even harder, i get home eat go to work, and then i only have four hours to do what ever i want, include homework and its 3 hours to do what ever i want, i just take it one step at a time starting with whats most important.

    i'm the opposite... i find something of interest and study all facets of it.. problem is every individual thing is infinitely complex.... and i spend more time in 'study' than 'practice'.... but once i get beyond the prep portion, look out

    yeah but today i was thinking about this very thing and no matter what it is that you are interested in it takes alot of study and practice before you can even do something worth being called an accomplishment. in alot of cases years.
    i dont know, ive been writing (nongraffiti related) since i was 15 and drawing since i was a kid and started studying graff shit in 97 and it gets boring you know? its like i need new interests to keep up my old addictions or something so i dont get burned out.
    so my recent idea was to start a new project involving graff but through a different medium which is video documentation. i have no idea where it will take me but i figure its the same reason alot of graff writers get real interested in photography other than documentation purposes, or canvases or whatever it may lead to.
    but the cool thing about being able to apply a new avenue to something you already know about is that it makes you that much better at whatever it is your new hobby may be.

    Yeah i got the same problem. I always want to do new things, add new experiences to my life, but either never really get into it and finish, or find the time to even start it. I guess it all comes down to what are your real priorities in life. But we all can dream.

    i'm exactly the same way. i constantly have ideas for things i want to be doing or should be doing and wind up never finishing these tasks. its very frusterating but i normally accomplish some of them eventually.You just have to knock them out one by one.

    I blame it on having too many options.

    I've always noticed rich kids have 10 things they're so-so at and poorer cats have one or two things they just get really good at.

    This isn't always the case, though.
