I have been talking to various people about digging on your own. The general consensus is that digging on your own is better than with people. I am inclined to agree. You have your pick of all the tools and the wheelbarrow, and you don’t tend to get distracted. Often you get as much done on your own as you would if there were more people there as you just get on with it.
Riding on your own is a different matter though. Its a lot more fun to ride with people than by yourself.
I was talking to Nigel yesterday about motivation too. He said that I seemed to be quite motivated about digging and things. I haven’t really thought about it before but I guess I just don’t like wasting time. I have got a bit obsessed by not wasting time. Like there are certain things that I won’t do when its light (like fixing my bike), because they can be done when its dark and I don’t want to waste the daylight. In my old house we had the TV and the computer in the same room so you could do both at the same time, which meant you got twice as much done! Now I just don’t watch TV. I shouldn’t use the computer so much either as it is a waste of time.
