It's easy to do a lot of things all at the same time. The difficult thing is excelling at even one of them. Here's a great post on Problogger.
"I’m an ideas person. I love being creative and starting things, but while this can be a definite advantage, it can also be a huge disadvantage – I realized that every time I started working a new idea, I was actually also giving up on something else. And if I kept moving on to new things, I’d never develop anything excellent.
We all have a finite amount of time in the day. I’d rather be excellent at one or two things than dabble and be average in twenty things.
Honestly, I think I hit 'plateau' stage rather than 'burnout' stage. I wondered why things weren’t taking off like they used to. I finally realized that greater levels of success require greater levels of sacrifice. That’s why you don’t see Olympic athletes at McDonald’s or Disneyland the day before their gold medal event. We all have a limited capacity for…everything. So the only way to increase our capacity for one thing is to reduce our capacity in another area – hence 'Do as little as possible, as well as possible.'" - Kat Lee of How They Blog
But, of course, if you haven't found your own thing yet, it's not yet time to do as little as possible. Not yet.
