So I've been doing some exercises lately related to finding what things make one enjoy what they do.
Most were questionnaires that made you think a bit about what you enjoyed about "____" and things you didn't enjoy. The part about what you enjoy usually was there to affirm that you were on the right track, the list about what you didn't enjoy was to get you to put them on paper. The last step was to simply ask you how you can overcome the things you didn't enjoy.
So here is my questionnaire for you. Don't feel obligated to take it or feel like you need to post your answers, it's really just for your own use to perhaps get you to some enlightenment if you're struggling with any of these. If you find at the end that you really hate woodworking, please don't blame me.
What drives you to do woodworking?
What things prevent you from working or getting motivated in the wood shop?
Do techniques keep you from enjoying woodworking?
What things do you not enjoy about working in the wood shop?
Reviewing your answers given above about the things that prevent you from working or getting motivated in the wood shop, what steps can you take to overcome some of these?
Reviewing your answers given above about what you don't enjoy, what steps can be taken to overcome some of your obstacles?
