Ive lost motivation......

Ive been working on my TJ for a while and Ive just lost motivation to get it done.Just dont want to work on it anymore.Its tough when you fix cars for a living then have to wrench on your own stuff on the weekends.Doesent make it fun!

I just read your post about lack of motivation. I can tell you your not the only one that feels that way or did feel that way. I am 60 years old and have been an HVAC/R technician and a RV mechanic all my life. As I get older it is harder for me do work on stuff because I have arthritis in my back and neck. I was put out to pasture 6 years ago and I miss working. I own and built or modified my 1951 Willys and a 2005 TJ. I have to force myself to keep active so I don't end up in a wheel chair. I will die on my feet and not live in a chair. It's not like I put in an 8 hour day but a few hours gets me outside and my toys are looking good too. Plus it keeps my weight down too. It's easy for me to be lazy but I just don't want to. It's like the ad says, Get out and play an hour a day. I hope this puts a spark back in you to work on your stuff. You will win in the long run. Later, Mo.

I will say it gets easier & a bit more exciting when i see my Jeep coming along.At first it sucks especially when I was fixing stuff (rear main) instead of cool upgrades.
Thanks for the support.
