I like it because it’s a challenge. I love the feeling of mastering that once insatiable trick, that took weeks to get down. It’s also a nice temporary escape from the world.
I don’t do it for anyone but me. I have no desires to yoyo for anyone’s approval, entertainment, or attention.
I suggest doing it only for yourself, otherwise you might lose track of why you like yoyo to begin with. Figure out what you enjoy out of it.
Don’t let yoyo’ing be an “On or Off” type of thing, as in… don’t just “quit” if you’re not doing it frequently. Too often people come around like “I don’t yoyo anymore, gonna sell my yoyo’s”. Then a couple years later they come back wanting to throw again wishing they hadn’t sold their Peak collection. Happened to me, so glad I didn’t just sell my old throws, but rather dusted them off and picked up where I left off.
There is middle ground to take breaks. Just let the yoyo sit on your desk, pick it up every once and a while. Be it, once every day, or once every 2 years
