Growing up my mother and father loved remodeling houses; they were always painting, building or moving something in our house. The most memorable remodel was when my parents gutted our kitchen and put in a new one. The floor studs had to be replaced, so for a couple days you could literally see the dirt beneath our kitchen floor. Every floor stud had to be cut out, replaced and reinforced. It was quite the undertaking, but my parents were up for the challenge, as always.
Building projects aren’t for everybody, but, I do think there is a project out there for everyone. Whether your passion is art, cooking, sports, exercise, gaming, building, sewing, or any of the other 1,000,000+ hobbies in the world you could have I’m convinced projects are for you. They keep our creative dreaming active and our problem-solving skills sharp; both of which move our world forward.
There are people who get intimidated by projects so they never dive in and start one. Don’t be afraid to take a leap and start the project that’s been in the back of your head for a couple months. Sure, you may fail, but that’s where those problem-solving skills come in. What if it succeeds? Then you’ll have completed something awesome and great, and move on to something bigger or more complex (creative dreaming).
It’s like they say, better to try and fail than to never try at all.
