For a long time, I have been fighting for more. I wanted to produce more art, write more pieces, and be accepted into more magazines. I wanted to do more in hopes that, then, my dream of becoming a full-time writer would happen faster. Do more, get more — was the mentality I adopted. And it didn’t seem like I was alone.

I would see posts, read articles, and watch videos of freelancers telling me the same thing — produce more work and try for more opportunities. Try this, do this, try this, do this — all the suggestions were making me feel confused and mixed up. I didn’t know which opportunities to channel my time and energy into and which to put on the back burner to try for later.

I was swamped by so many ideas that I couldn’t fully execute any of them. I gave only a fraction of what I was capable of to each opportunity because I didn’t have enough time to fully invest in each one.

Become the Best at One Thing

I remember my dad telling us kids growing up to pick one thing. Pick one thing and focus on it. Learn everything about it. Practice. Invest your time. Become the best.
