I'm not sure in what way - I tend to get bored if I stick with one thing for too long, and once I get bored I lose my motivation and interest.

Do with what you have

"What you have matters more than what you lack (If you’ve got a bicycle, consider what you can build based on that, rather than worrying about not having a car, a truck, a metal shop.)"

... This is a really important personality everyone must own if we want to move on as individuals. If you have nothing at all dont dwell on it becuase not everyone in the world is willing to help you, so must know how to help yourself. Make do with what you have becuase we dont…
