I have so many unfinished projects, it would take 2 Einsteins to count them... from novels to video games to random crazy schemes....what about you?

I voted "Yeah" and "Not anymore".
"Not anymore" is based on work and "adulting". I've taken on the mindset that there are things I need to complete even if it doesn't seem interesting to do so.
I find I look towards to finishing the tasks I'm given - feel a sort of accomplishment and that I'm moving ahead with my life.

But when it comes to my hobbies (things I do for fun) - a lot of unfinished stuff. Once I get bored, I don't feel the need to finish.

That was true when I was younger. It seems easier to handle now that I'm older, and alone, so I know it won't get done if I don't do it.

Depends on my level of interest. Some things I can do even if I have to march through hell and back.. other things are boring and I procrastinate because of that.

Procrastination basically happens due to negative feelings (boredom, fear and such) so I learned to combine boring or scary tasks with some fun things. Example exercise and good music. Its all a question of tricking your brain's dopamine reward system.

Not any more.

What works for me is to have a grounding schedule (work) which gives me a parameter. I’ve also had to work really hard through the years to just stick to projects. But also have enough hobbies and stuff to do so I can jump between as suits me.
