Obsession – Not Always A Bad Thing
I’m not generally a person with an addictive personality. I’ve never been hooked on drugs or cigarettes, and am happy to break my daily routine.
However, I do get quite obsessive over stuff.
There’s been martial arts training (ok, so that’s lasted for 28 years), playing bass guitar every spare second of the day when I was in bands, sword fighting/fencing, everything ‘motorbike”, and even girls (not in a stalky way).
Now, of course, I’m living and breathing motor racing as I gear up towards having my first race in Formula Vee later this year.
You may notice that most of these things I’ve moved on from, after a very intense period from months to years. Even my writing comes in bursts – and at one time I was almost constantly writing poetry and short stories and blogs.
I guess it’s very likely to be my creative side in all these things.
I will do my utmost to master my latest obsession. I’m very competitive, and always attempt to be the absolute best, but then also know when to yield and acknowledge I’ve reached my peak and others may be better.
I’m not really a perfectionist – but will strive for perfection from the outset.
This does seem to work for me, too!
With motor racing, it could be the first time that budget gets in the way of my quest to perfect driving a car really quickly around a race track, and that might be tough to take.
So here’s to a big win on the Lottery!
Or maybe to picking up a sponsor who shares my kind of obsession?
