I hear you Adam. Once you got it mostly figured out, πŸ‘‰πŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ  on it for sure. It’s not fun anymore. Time for something else. The vast majority of people don’t get that. Which is fine, it’s not a lifestyle for everyone. But for those of us who get it, we get it.

This sounds a bit like ADHD to me. Constantly needing new, novel stimulus to keep the dopamine flowing. Unable to keep going once the interesting new is mastered and the grinding incremental progress remains, because it's too boring, too repetitive, not enough dopamine.

It also reminds me of Danny Elfman, in a recent interview on his life.

I miss your old YT/Vimeo videos. They are classics. Some of the most inspiring media I have ever seen in my life...

I hope you find your path forward.
