Hello guys, Im not sure that this issue will end then and I do not know who can give me a solution to my problem.
So, I often live my life with just many skill ideas that relate to my goals, of course, I have goals. BUT, these ideas are not realized bcs I know I just do nothing. I know where to start, but this overwhelmed me bcs it is such as I push maself too hard. so, it always happens to me without stoping until I hate myself. I wonder what is wrong with me and how to get out from this?
thank you very much to come here 🙂 I love u allMay 3, 2020 at 10:36 am #352860
You have a goal, next, you push yourself too hard to accomplish the goal, and next, you get overwhelmed, give up and next, you hate yourself and end up “doing nothing”. Did I understand correctly?
If I did understand correctly, can you give me an example of a goal you had recently and in what ways you pushed yourself toward achieving that goal before you gave up?

thank you very much for your response.
So, I have a goal to live in Florence and also to be a freelance that as a video editor, a writer, and an illustrator.
So, I pushed myself to learn Florence culture and their language, and at the same time, I learn about editing video, writing, and drawing at the same time. But, those things make me overwhelmed and I end with doing nothing. I do not know wht is my problem, are my goals not strong enough as my motivation?May 4, 2020 at 7:18 am #353050
You are welcome.
Regarding your plan to work as a freelance video editor, writer and illustrator: I think that you need a detailed, thorough plan so to go about achieving these goals, and you need people with real life experience in doing what you hope to do, so to help you out with putting a doable plan together. A competent professional consultation with people in video editing, writing and illustrating industry is necessary before you proceed. Before you commit to a plan, get real-life information on how life will be for you practically (salary, work environment, etc.) if you achieve your goal, and figure if that kind of life makes all the time and investment you are about to make worthwhile.
* Wikipedia on video editing reads that video editing can be used for many purposes such as education, entertainment, and documentation. www. theartcareerproject. com/ careers/ video-editing reads that a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in film studies or production is usually necessary in order to start a successful video editing career. You may want to look at accesseditors. org, which is “an international members’ alliance of editors working in digital media, traditional print media, corporate communication, book publishing, academia, government, and beyond.. We are freelance editors, students and professors”.
Regarding living in Florence, Wikipedia reads: “Tourism is, by far, the most important of all industries and most of the Florentine economy relies on the money generated by international arrivals and students studying in the city.. From April to October, tourists outnumber local population… in 2015 the city ranked as the world’s 36th most visited in the world, with over 4.95 million arrivals for the year”.
What this means is that Florence is hit hard by the pandemic, because its greatest industry by far is tourism. Keep that in mind, and follow the happenings in the city, so to have current information on practical matters that may be relevant to your plans.

In the US there is a government agency called the Small Business Administration (SBA) whose goal is to “enable the establishment and viability of small businesses”. The SBA funds Women’s Business Centers (WBCs): a national network of non-profit educational centers. These centers are “designed to assist women in starting and growing small businesses.. providing training, mentoring, business development, and financing opportunities to over 100,000 women entrepreneurs annually across the nation” (Wikipedia).
I don’t know if you are a man or a woman and I don’t know in what country you live. If you don’t live in the US, check and see if there is a government agency similar to the SBA/WBCs. Reads like help with training and mentoring (above) is just what you need.
