Whenever I see a list of studies I want to do, I get all pumped up and excited about checking things off the list until I actually put butt in chair, at which point ten minutes in I start fidgeting and it's willpower and self discipline time. Likewise, I get most excited about art when I'm not actually drawing. When I'm drawing I always have to make myself do it.
I know it's normal to get bored of the grind, but is that normal to happen all the time? I can't tell if I'm somehow deluding myself with some ideal of what practice is supposed to look like, especially as I know first hand that practice and studies are pretty dull, but this happens pretty much every time and is actually worse when it comes to working on personal pieces.
