I just ran into a blog post by the painter Nancy Reyner: So Many Ideas, So Little Time. She has brilliantly captured the feelings of being overwhelmed by too many ideas -- what I was discussing, though not nearly as well, on my post Overwhelmed by Possibilities.
And weirdly enough, her solution to the problem is not unlike mine, except that again she has expressed it brilliantly.
In case you haven't figure it out, I highly recommend reading the piece........
Actually, do explore the whole blog as well. She has much of interest and value.
