Too Many Projects, Not Enough Resources
As an analogy, consider your closet. Or mine, which is a mess. I’ve got too much stuff jammed in there. So I think that I should get a closet organizer. I go to the store and examine lots of fancy organizers. I have fun shopping around and fantasizing about how everything will be neat once I’ve got the right organizer. This fantasy is a distraction. What I need to do is clean my closet. Once I’ve cleaned my closet, I may well need an organizer. But it is going to be a completely different organizer than the elaborate fantasy. Most portfolios simply need cleaning. This comes before organizing.
