When you share the stories about all the irons you have in the fire it’s sure to impresses the heck out of everyone.
However the truth is, having too many irons in the fire puffs up your ego and keeps you stuck in an illusion that you’re getting somewhere.
Having too many irons in the fire supports an archaic belief that the more irons you have in the fire the better your chances for success.
Having too many irons in the fire becomes food for distraction and fuel for confusion.
Important because the only red-hot iron you should have in the fire is the one that will bring you closer to the dreams and goals that are most important to you.
“There’s the next mission and nothing else! The only thing that’s important to me is the next mission.”—Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man
