If you follow my thought philosophy you'll recognize that I often talk about the importance of finding what works for you. In many cases those with the most potential don't achieve it due to being distracted by other wants and desires. Whether it be their own or their families pressure to point them in a direction they may not be meant to flow in.
So follow your efforts and follow your groove and flow where your energy and talents reside. Here's a quote that resonated that made me think of that:
"We all of us have limited amounts of energy, and I am sure the people who are successful have learned, either by instinct or consciously, to use their energies well instead of spilling them about. And this has to be different for every person, writers or otherwise. I know writers who go to parties every night and then, recharged instead of depleted, happily write all day. But if I stay up half the night talking, I don’t do so well the next day. Some writers like to start work as soon as they can in the morning, while others like the night or—for me almost impossible—the afternoons. Trial and error, and then when you’ve found your needs, what feeds you, what is your instinctive rhythm and routine, then cherish it."

“Every problem, every dilemma, every dead end we find ourselves facing in life, only appears unsolvable inside a particular frame or point of view. Enlarge the box, or create another frame around the data, and problems vanish, while new opportunities appear.”
