Dien and I both juggle a lot of balls, and we both like it that way.
I've had some free time lately, and it's been difficult to figure out what to focus on (i.e. which project) to fill it...

I recently made a huge "issue tree" of all the projects I could work on... Plus sub-branches of those projects. Let's just say, the final result was pretty huge.

Now to work on whittling it down...

One thing I've been working on lately has been to focus on better decision making. As a result, I've looked into new tools to use, like making issue trees, decision trees, and so on.

I used to figure that "success" (assuming you already have the motivation) was based on...

* Your knowledge
* Your skills
* Your resources (which includes your people networks)

So I worked on all of those. (I'd say I've done pretty well by doing that...)

But now I believe I've missed one...

* The ability to make the best decision

This is not always an easy thing! You can have knowledge, skills, and great resources, and still make awful decisions which cause you lots of pain.

Improving my decision-making skills (by improving my decision-making tool box) is something I'm working on now...

Best wishes!
