The ever increasing digital backlog of "stuff" is stressing me out. Dozens of MOOC courses, hundreds of epubs/PDFs, 1000+ games and a long list of projects are all begging for attention in the 1-2 hours a night I have free to spend as a like. How do you choose?
Sometimes I get overwhelmed with "so many choices," so I purposefully try to limit myself to one or two things at a time. I finish a show I've started before, and then move on to a new one. The same with games, books, and movies.
I just cross out from my to-do list a few books/movies/etc every couple of months. It's the only way. The life is too short. Yet.
Prioritize ruthlessly. I set out for myself 3 goals each quarter, then I see how I did at the end of the quarter. I try and do this in my personal life and my professional life.
Unfortunately I don't have any answers but just wanted to say that I also find it impossible to keep up
You don't, it seems that you have a textbook case of choice overload. Limit your options!
