Post Mental Investment
Can enthusiasm or "lack of" cause one to lose their touch? Other moods, such as boredom, laziness, disinterest? I know these can cause lots of AOL's. After awhile, the learning of the processs is done. I decided to do different tasks and that helped, but the more diverse I got, the more my successes plummeted. Can one over-fill with too many balls in the air? (Took that one from Major Smith) I know about burnout, thus quitting on a high and resting, but can practice, practice, practice be achieved with just a couple tasks? I believe success breeds success, but I wonder about the pro's experiences. Any lessons there? Thanks for any input! Lee

I'm in the middle of teaching a remote viewing course, but they're writing essays right now, so I'll take a minute...but his will be shor! :D Enthusiasm plays a role in whether you actually "get down to business," but not necessarily in success. Even unenthusiastic person can have success (though as long as the success holds out they don't necessarily stay unenthusiastic!). As far as practice -- as time goes on your threshold tolerance for practice should increase. In other words, you can tolerate more practice without needing to take so many "breaks" or "quittings-on-a-high" (to coin a phrase! ). However, you always want to be careful not to push this too far, and in fact it's always better to err on the side of caution (in other words, better not to push enough rather than too much) .

It is certainly possible for boredom to set in, which is why varying tasks is important. But you never escape boredom altogether -- so for example, at Ft. Meade, getting paid to be a RV'er ALL the time, we sometimes got to feeling like it was just another job, and we didn't always want to do it. Don't know the remedy for that -- I'll have to think on it awhile yet, LOL.

Best,
Paul
