Got a question from a reader who is ambitious and has had some successes, but feels erratic and like he's taken on too many projects that haven't borne fruit. My reply --
I recommend you take a notebook to a nice cafe with no technology and write down every major success of your life (major being however you define it).
Look for commonalities.
We often make the same mistakes over and over and our only plan is "try harder" -- instead, identify elements/features of when you've thrived...
