I'm your typical 'creative' - someone who always has a million projects simultaneously on the go. I'm never ever bored, I love time spent at home (generally working on or creating new projects), and I'm always on a quest for knowledge and new skills (which invariably leads to even more projects).
But one thing I've found over the years is that something else accompanies all these many projects I launch myself into. I call it 'project guilt' - that sense of always trying to do much more than one person possibly has the time and resources to do. Essentially it's a case of too many projects and not enough time. As a result, many of my projects never quite reach completion, and I have a life full of projects all vying for my precious time and priority, and hence an overwhelming feeling of being stretched too thinly across too many projects (the source of 'project guilt').
I often think to myself that I shouldn't start new projects until some of the old ones are knocked off first, but it never works like that. They just keep coming, whether I look for them or not. Probably the biggest generator would be my artistic hobbies (too many to list here) - a never-ending source of projects. Another biggie is my job as a graphic designer, itself defined by all the many individual projects I am working on for clients. Even recreational activities are just like projects too. Planning a holiday, or a night out, or a bbq party, or a morning hike, or cooking a meal, they are all just like projects in my mind. In fact, now that I think about it, everything I do in my life, big or small, feels like a project.
Are there other people out there who also feel as though their life is just one constant ongoing cycle of projects? Is that what life actually is?
