Time Sharing - Life, work and hobby(ies)

Since the day I started my wood turning hobby/passion I often find myself in the position where I have to decide on what I do now, how to spend my time more productively...

I usually find myself ignoring my hobby because something else is up - I want to rest / update on the news / email / TV watching / spend time with my family / work / reading books / updating my blogs / sites / house / garden / other projects /...

Now two or three items in the list are obviously superior to wood turning (I leave it to you to guess which ones) but the others are not that much more important to me. So I have to wonder why I don't turn so much these days (more like don't turn at all).

This might seem petty to you, but the truth is that *starting* to turn is my problem, my workshop is a cramped little plastic shed, and I feel cramped and prodded in there. every time I think about turning - I get that stuffy feeling and can't bring myself to go there at all. True, I've seen shops that were worse than mine, and people make do and create beautiful objects - I know this is MY limitation.

So I decided to invest in this, to eliminate this blockage (money can be the answer sometimes :-)) - I'm saving to build my real place... I have the land to do it, so there is nothing to stop me - once I collect the necessary funds this is a go! Hopefully, in a few months this will be getting underway - the Eshel Studio (also collecting for a table saw, radial drill press and router + table - heeheehhee).
