Obsession stage of DIY project

So I’ve been working on a DIY pottery wheel for my daughter and my brain is firmly in obsession stage.

As far as I can tell, here are my mental stages of a project like this:

  • Mild interest
  • Research
  • Initial purchases
  • Frustration
  • Dawning comprehension
  • Obsession
  • Exhaustion
  • Breather
  • Second wind
  • Completion

The last two steps are optional.
