The Pattern of My Obsessions [Re-post]

  1. Accumulate interest in a subject without taking action.
  2. Saturate myself in the subject, taking repeated actions to get an overview of the topic.
  3. Find the pieces that interest me the most.
  4. Study those pieces for a time.
  5. As the interest wanes, tell myself that I'll "get back to it soon". I don't.
  6. Become comfortable saying "nah, I dropped that. Maybe I'll get back into it someday."

I wish I could find a way to leverage this trend.
