That's actually a pretty good analogy, but you can still take
the bike for a ride even those it may not have all the fancy
chrome on it yet. It the motor starts and the wheels are
attached why not take it for a ride.
For me it's not just moving between projects that prevents any
one from completion but time. I'm sure most of us have
responsibilities to work and such. I also have other interests
that compete for my time, including hobbies that I put above
conlanging though they don't seem to get allocated much time
either. Conlanging is my "lazy" hobby for when I'm home and not
motivated to do any requiring physical activity.
