plurality, many interests, not managing well, long
I have many different intests. Reading, writing, different sports, drawing, programming, paper-crafting, juggling. Could go on.
When I try to follow all of them in parallel (which I did), I never get anything done, or don't get better* at it. I feel like I'm pulled in so many directions at the same time, that I don't move at all. But I get sad if I have to limit myself.
At some point I thought #plurality would help to understand and balance those interests, too. But eventually that would mean that those few (two atm) creative and curious system members are systems on their own with different interests for each sub-member. And everyone tries to vote for their interests.
But that sounds like a huge mess, even for foggy me with limited insight. I guess something else is at work here, but I can't put my finger on it, let alone manage it properly.
*: Getting better is not a criterion, but would be nice to see every now and then.

@teatime Been there, done that. Truth is, multiplicity rarely helps many interest case unless you have been already super organised before. It doesn't buy you extra time, it just gives you extra needs with already limited amount of time.
Try focusing on the things that majority/all of you like. If there are no such things, try to combine some of your interests so you can fulfill two interests at once (for example finding a sport discipline that has qualities of both other sport disciplines etc.).
Eventually there are always some interests that are not shared by many system members and they have to be left behind due to incompatibility/lack of time. It might be painful but it has to be done. Finding mutual interests that can be fulfilled simultaneously is a key to healthy functioning.
