Cross Purposes

I have two projects I’m working on that are mutually exclusive. If I get funding for one, I can’t do the other, and vice versa. Given that I’m not one of the fortunate folks who can hold two contradicting thoughts in their minds at the same time, the whole process confuses and disheartens me. It’s smart to apply for both at once because I maximize my chance of getting something. But I’m a very one-dimensional, obsessive person. If I get invested into one thing, it’s super hard to break the concentration and switch my attention to a parallel project.
