Horrible things about getting old #1 :

Everyone says you shouldn't get stuck in your ways and should be open to new ideas. You want to take that advice seriously and you know that you do seem to be getting fixed ... but you now know so many different ideas, that you can't tell which way to jump.

I don't do yoga, but it seems like such a good idea. I like that the reason to do yoga is precisely to get out of the rut a wagon wheel makes.

Still I can't help but think--hum this is out of bounds--that finishing things is hard for you.

The irony about that is while sometimes it may get chocked up to laziness, really it has more to do with your abundance of curiosity. There's always another avenue to explore.

Your curiosity will keep you in good supply of new ideas, and like Parker observes there's no cure for it. So it's a matter of proportion, and probably you need somebody to give you permission to stick with whatever you're working to finish.

A rude and presumptuous comment! You know I could be full of crap :-)
