For as long as I can remember I have always been at least mildly obsessed with any one hobby/thing. Once I have found that thing I could really care less about anything else. Seriously I will be thinking about this thing most of the day and it is always somewhere in the back of mind. This will continue until I either grow tired of or push that thing out of my life, then it's on to the next thing. A few examples so far have been with sports, cars, computers, video games, girls and music. I don't think that there's really anything wrong with liking something a lot, it's just I cannot maintain a broad interest in things and quite frankly it sucks and makes me less of an interesting and aware person. Practicing the phrase "All things in moderation" to me is like trying to play fetch with a no-legged dog, it just doesn't work! It's go all-out or nothing with me. Sometimes I hate talking to these really creative people that are fascinated with everything because it only reminds me of my problem. I would compare the average life-loving person to a quad core CPU while I'm slowly crunching numbers one at a time with my single core. When I finish that process, it's on to the next. Now you may think I could use this to my advantage and become a professional or subject matter expert of some sort. Unfortunately I usually do not end up really passionate about these things in the long run and give them up before anything really good can come of it. Can anyone relate to me here? Any tips to open up and expand my mind? No, I'm not asking you how you broke your World of Warcraft addiction (I've been through that already), my issue is much more broad. It's to the point where I think it could have detrimental effects to my career and relationships.
