OT - Attention Span
I have an attention span of about 6 weeks. During those 6 weeks, I am totally obsessive about whatever it is - diet, exercise, cooking, a variety of hobbies, pet training, travel, etc. After those 6 weeks, I lose interest and find something else. Anyone else have this problem?

are you an aries? haha. i do similar things-i get really fired up and excited about a project, a job, an idea, exercise, etc and then i burn out as hard as i started. and then i jump into something else.
my boyfriend says i'm horrible to watch a movie with. i can't sit still.

OP - I'm a sagg. I wonder how much astrology really has to do with your personality

I know what you mean!
I'm an aries and I am the same way!
Aries, Saggitarius and Leo are all fire signs, so I think they may share some similarities, or at least we get along well. But I'm no expert on astrology.

I can't sit through a whole movie either! I think because I always feel like there is more I could be doing. But one the other hand once I decide to do something or take up something new I do it pretty much forever. I am a Virgo, is anyone else this way?

Also a Virgo
Holy Cow! I am the same way with movies... to sit through (and focus on) an entire movie is so hard! And I'm the same way with developing habits for life. I may get sidetracked for a while, but I always seem to come back to them.

Just for the record: I'm an aries and am not this way at all.

It's very normal to jump head-first into a program and then turn to something else after several weeks. It's just human nature. I don't know if it has anything to do with your sign. I'm a capricorn, and I find that I need change after about 6 weeks as well.

I think the way to combat that--with something that you want to continue doing--is to change what you're doing every so often. Change your work out, for example. I, by the way, do things like take my dog to agility class to keep on working on her training in different ways. Otherwise, yes, I lose my focus!
