| ||Ask HN: Why do I lose interest in every project after 6 months?|

|It's like clockwork.|
I'll get HYPER-interested in something, to the point that I can't stop talking about it or thinking about it nonstop. I go through 'buildout' if it's a project, 'level up' if it's a game, or even went down the road of DJing and playing in a band.
Each time, after roughly 6 months, I burn out and end up moving on to something new with little desire to pursue my last project.
I'm extremely worried about this as I've been working passionately on a new startup idea with some friends and we're nearing the 2 month mark.
How can I stay enthusiastic?
