      6.) To give up especially when the reason is short sighted
      7.) Allow a hobby to detract from family and truly important life stuff
      8.) Getting hung up on what other have and constantly bemoaning the fact that you don't
      9.) Forgetting that this stuff is fun and an escape from the daily grind
      10.) to use the most dangerous words in the English language, "That's the way we've always done it"


      The way I handle most of those things, in particular when I swapped the 5.0 to my little truck, was to remember that I am "eating an elephant". You can't do it all in one day, but with planning, time, and enjoyment- it gets done. "One bite at a time"
