Whenever we have the opportunity to experience or do something new, it can be very exciting… initially. Having variety is one of the great joys in life.
The energy, sense of anticipation and being able to explore new opportunities are signs that there is something to look forward to.
While the opportunity to learn or try new things is highly desirable, it can also be a major distraction. When we have too many distractions, it causes us to dilute our focus, lose momentum, not keep our commitments and agreements, and even give up on projects or goals we had set.
Rather than staying on course and completing what we currently have going on, being attracted to these new “shiny objects” can lead to failure, frustration and overwhelm.
