Robert is a painter and blogger, and his post today, "Never satisfied", addresses the concerns of a painter who is never satisfied with his work. His comments could equally be applied to woodturning. He categorizes dissatisfaction in four ways, and provides four answers to each:
- "Amateur epiphany" - being really satisfied with work is mainly the province of amateurs.
- "Journeyman jading" - it's time to think again and move on.
- "Workman remorse" - re-dedication, re-thinking and "back to basics" may be in order.
- "Professional humility" - high standards cannot always be met and perfection is an impossible dream.
