Regaining motivation [#2401]
18.104.22.168: Regaining motivation
(2010-10-03 14:28) [#8022]
From time to time I feel that my playing gets mechanical, uninspired and just plain dull. My motivation and interest in Go seems to fade away, because of too many other obligations. But I realized that I can do something to counter this: I started reading the 'Hikaru No Go' series again. This may sound silly, but it helps.
So here is my question:
What do you do to regain your interest and motivation in playing Go in such a situation?
: Get a rival

I know what you mean about "mechanical"
A friend and I taught ourselves to play a few years ago,
Now if I have lost the zest - I just look at his KGS ranking...Then I am right back on go world.
It is a bit like the hikaru story - but it works for me :)
