Prioritizing

I am just interested in too many things. Too many hobbies, passions, interests, optional fun things to do--taking up too much time, room in the house for the stuff that goes with them. I have a tendency to discover something new, try to learn everything about it, try it out--and then either it sticks or it doesn't (and if the latter I'm stuck with a box of silk floss and a blow torch, or seven books on Norwegian stave architecture, or whatever). I'm not saying it's a good thing, just that that's what happens. So I'm working on figuring out what they all are, and how much time/attention/effort they deserve. Because I have a lot I want to do this year and just saying "oh, it'll get done" won't do it.

4. Temporaries. Things that I dive into in a passion, but quickly (or maybe not so quickly) tire of. (Like knitting. I made three afghans, two hats and a scarf, and that was enough.) This is the troublesome area, the one that fills the basement with stuff. (Because you never know which are the real never-return temporaries and which will eventually come back.)

3. Recurrings. Things that come and go, that disappear for a while and then come back a few months or years later. (Like the SCA, although that hasn't come back for a while.)

2. Permanents. Things that are never disappear entirely, although they may go on the back burner for a while. (Like quilting.)

1. Constants. Things that actually never go away. (Like keeping a (paper) journal.)

Note to self: Spend the effort on the constants and permanents!
