- The "look shiney" or "squirrel" effect of jumping into new projects before old projects even see the table, or before I have a feeling on how a game actually plays or whether my friends will truly be interested in playing.
The conversations with my gaming friends have just really reinforced my new found mantra of doing what makes me happy. I believe I am going to cut back some on the number of games/systems I play. I feel that it may be difficult for me to not get distracted and remain focused in doing so, but in the long run if I can overcome that struggle, I will likely be able to accomplish more of what I really want to do focused on rules/periods that I really enjoy and am familiar with.
Another issue that drives some of my gamer friends crazy is how I divest/get rid of stuff. Meanwhile it drives me crazy to have:
- Armies sitting unused for extended periods of time (years in some cases);
- Projects sitting (again sometimes for years) not being started or started and never worked on to completion because someone else has more than enough stuff for me to game; and,
- Not playing a set of rules or similar rules on a frequent enough basis that I don't have to keep thumbing through the rules to look stuff up.
The difficult answer I have to come up with now is where to start?
