I just like getting opinions on something before I take action, I think it's a fault. It could be a way to rationalize not thinking for myself.
Maybe I'm not cut - out for this route if I need to hop on a forum and ask people what they think about everything.
Or, maybe not. Maybe someone who isn't cut out is the one who asks himself that.
I didn't have much discipline until I started ID, I felt it was the right thing and it wouldn't matter how many hours I would spent on it. It didn't matter whether it was sketching, modelling or prototyping, I just wanted to whatever I was working on in a good way, in a way I'd feel proud of the result.
I think it's good that you are asking questions and probably this is the right place, we have insights that maybe will help you choosing the right path. At the end, the decision is up to you, but at least you'll have more information to back what you decide.
Now that I saw what Greenman said, he made a good point. Do you really wanna be an IDer or create your own stuff and set up a business? In my opinion, one is quite different from the other.
