Projects – Some ideas on burning out – Indiecator


So, I’ve this downside. I can’t actually see by way of a number of video games or tasks or no matter… and therefore, I’m kinda pleased with myself for persevering with to weblog, persevering with to attract, persevering with to stream, persevering with to review, persevering with to scrub the dishes each day, and that sorta stuff.

If you’ve adopted alongside for some time, it’s possible you’ll know that I began a Monster Hunter collection, a Final Fantasy collection, a Hardspace collection and even did some posts on Minecraft.

Well,… none of these tasks actually had been seen by way of to the tip and simply ended haphazardly.

The Instagram web page and the YouTube channel additionally sorta show that. I feel that one thing’s a good suggestion and if I don’t get rewarded for it in a technique or one other, I simply find yourself dropping it.

With running a blog, you may see stats going up. That kinda acts like “words of affirmation” (one of many many love languages) for me. I really feel achieved. People learn these posts, they like them or no matter… and it confirms that I ought to maintain going like this.

With these collection, no one actually cared and I felt like the hassle of doing them wasn’t being rewarded in any respect. Thus, I dreaded writing these posts.

At least, I consider that that’s how my mind works or that that’s the explanation why I drop tasks so typically.

With running a blog and streaming I had some indicator as as to if or not I’m getting higher at it. With drawing, I had small success over time within the type of me really liking a few of my drawings. I could get pleasure from drawing, running a blog and streaming both manner… however having slightly success right here and there or being awarded slightly actually helps with motivation.

Or reasonably… it prevents burning out.

When I play Dark Souls 3, I really like the world and fight, the concepts, the lore, and the enemy design. When I get caught someplace as a result of I don’t know what path to comply with or the place to go, I form of get bored and depart it at that. When I struggle a boss and die, that’s high-quality. I most likely did one thing fallacious. When the “I did something wrong” is simply “I should grind some more”, although, I really feel discouraged – like in some Roguelikes.

My reward for laundry the dishes is… not feeling responsible and never feeling like my flatmate’s pissed or no matter. Just as a facet notice, no anxiousness there, so all good. I’ll stick with it.

Anyway, I feel it typically helps once you your self suppose you’ve achieved one thing. When folks like what you do and say so, that helps. At least, I do know that that helps me.

So once you see some cool paintings, as an example, you may share it with folks, retweet or increase it, prefer it or give it an up-vote, and many others. Reward folks for his or her accomplishments.

IRL, I attempt to encourage folks by telling them what they do nice after they really feel like they haven’t accomplished a lot. Just some ideas.

This submit was first revealed on Indiecator by Dan Indiecator aka MagiWasTaken. If you want what you see right here and need to see extra, you may examine me out on Twitch and YouTube as effectively.
