Thinking of interesting projects is easy. I've got a selection of things in my mental queue, power electronics projects, software projects, and some home-related things. And then of course there's whatever I have going on at work, although that of course is a separate queue.

Part of it is the end goal, the thing you end up with when the project is done: the box, the configuration, whatever. But part of it is the journey, the meditative process of chilling out with a cup of coffee on a rainy day and working on something.

Both require a start, getting nudged onto the track of progress. Sometimes it's easier to do this than at other times. Sometimes inspiration strikes randomly, other times it's a schedule, a ritual you stick to. Sometimes with others, sometimes solo.
