So… I have this problem. We can call it: “Overreaching”.

Before starting, there’s a funny narrated version of this article on youtube, click here to check it out.

This is me in my mind:

“I can finish this in 10 minutes, this in another 15 minutes, this is gonna take me like an hour or so, and by the end of the week, I would have advanced on 15 projects. Accomplishing my intention of being a successful freelance illustrator/cartoonist/blogger/writer/super husband/super son/super cool dude in general”

And this is me in the real world:

“I don´t know how to begin with this. I’m out of inspiration. My head hurts a bit. I’m so tired. I’m so overwhelmed by all the things I’ve committed to do and now I can’t fulfill them. I’m just gonna see these few notifications on twitter and hope 5 hours not to pass without me accomplishing nothing”.
