The first trick to juggling projects is collaboration. This enables you to jump from project to project without losing momentum on any of them. Momentum is everything when it comes to seeing a project through to completion, so this is absolutely vital.
With that said, having no partner is better than having a bad partner. Choice carefully those you work with. Find someone who compliments your strengths and is skilled in the areas you are weak in.
Separate your projects. Block out your schedule and devote a certain amount of time to each. This will keep your mind sharp as you dissect the problems you have to solve. This is also another reason why collaboration is crucial – it lets you transition and focus on the task at hand because your partner is still stirring the pot.
Assess what your long and short-term projects are. Do this by looking at them through multiple criteria. What projects require the most hours to complete? What are your hard deadlines? Which are your best opportunities in the present? If you don’t capitalize now, which chance will slip away or what connection might you lose touch with?
The long-term projects lack the immediate gratification, but even if you have to put them on the back burner in favor of the short-term projects, just continue to chip away. Remain consistent above all.
