When you are working on your genealogy adventure remember to stay focused!
Constantly remind yourself of your ultimate short and long term goals. It is so easy to get distracted by those "shiny bright things" that seem to always pop up. Make a note to yourself to add it to your future list of things to research, then put it aside.
