I've noticed that many woodworkers seem not to progress in their skills over time, and I believe it's because they're afraid to try new things for fear that they'll not be successful. Other woodworkers seem to only want to do new work because doing the same thing over and over bores them.
But each finds satisfaction in their choices. You just have to decide what kind of woodworker you are and what gives you the satisfaction you seek in doing woodwork.
Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.
