But once I start doing the same exact pattern over and over again it probably takes me about 6 months to lose interest and thats when i really start wasting time like your threads asking and I'm online shopping, surfing the net, writing emails, etc probably from 25% to 50% of the time I should be working.
I think for me I have to be constantly doing new things or learning new things if not I lose interest fast and I get distracted at work.
I think thats why I take on new major projects every 3 years or so
