I know all about getting burnt out. You put tons of effort into something you really enjoy and end up over-indulging on it or over-burdening yourself over it. If you keep forcing the issue, you won't go back because you'll end up hating the things you love. I've seen plenty of projects that end up getting sold off, incomplete, just to get it completely out of their lives.
I know that feeling….I got burnt out on my Ramcharger project, and it ended up sitting in my backyard for over ten years, incomplete. I tried to reignite the project a few times but I couldn't get back into it, because the things that caused the project to stall were still there and it wasn't enjoyable any more. Now I have a new project and I'm determined to see it through, but I'm beginning to get that burned-out feeling because the project has taken too long, it's caused arguments between my wife and I, it's still absorbing my money and I can't enjoy using the truck.
The best I can do is step away sometimes and take on other things in my life that I enjoy…but in the back of my head, I don't want this project to liger as long as the previous project lingered. Sometimes it takes a concerted effort to keep from being burned out. Involving friends and family helps. Take everything in moderation. Over-indulgence is the number 1 reason of burn out.
As for me, I'm still trying to get my Dakota on the road…it's 99% of the way there, and it's much further along from where the last project stalled. But it's still not ready to roll. And it's been frustrating to reach the finish line.
