Today was going to be the day I finished a project I have been working on and off project- for over two weeks now. The trouble with this project isn’t that the project is so difficult – it’s the fact that the intrusions this week have been non-stop. I some times wonder if it’s only me -or if somehow I invite them. I have had to set some rules in my shop regarding unexpected guests, or friends just stopping by with out me knowing ahead of time – or a specific invitation to do so. I am curious how others handle this. I like company ,don’t get me wrong and its nice to share my projects with others-however, it seems to really cut into to the limited time I have in my shop. One thing I have found is the longer a project drags on- the more mistakes I am likely to make and – it’s easier for me to loose interest. The likely hood for the project to feel more like work- or a “chore”, rather than fun seems to increase also. In this case its double trouble because I am doing something I promised my self I wouldn’t do again. That is, build a custom piece of furniture for a family member. I so- know better. I guess I am a sucker for punishment. Of course I’m behind on the project and they will be here tomorrow -to stay with me before they ship out on a 10 day cruise. I know full well they would love to see it done when they get back. I’m sure they are hoping and probably expecting it to be done by now. Oh well.
Some day I will learn.
