The last few visits to the shop haven’t been as productive as I would’ve liked. It’s been scattered. I’ll start something, leave off and start another something, and then leave that and do something else. The focus and commitment isn’t there.
I was looking at power tools again this morning. I just can’t decide what would be the most useful tool to get or if I should even get one at all. If I knew what I wanted to do, what projects I wanted to build, it’d be easier to decide what I need. As it is, working away on a few things, little by little, it’s not clear what I need in order to succeed.
While writing my morning pages, it occurred to me that perhaps the most important tool that I need to get myself is patience. It’d be much easier to do things, stay calm, remain focussed, and make progress if I were more patient. How does one cultivate patience? It’s not a tool that Home Depot carries and I can’t get it delivered from Amazon. If only Costco sold it in bulk.
If I had patience, there’d already be enough tools in my shop.
