In all honesty there's no reason you should enjoy it, at least not this early on. It's almost like a test, if you can't stick this part out then you're maybe not really cut out for playing the guitar...

Possibly the best thing you can do is simply put the guitar down, then there's absolutely no chance of the autopilot kicking in when you're trying to come up with something new.
