I think the crux of the problem is that I am only motivated by libido to pursue girls or learn pickup skills while libido is not always on.When my libido is off, I don't have the motivation to pursue girls or learn pickup skills. While my libido is on, I try to pick up girls with my clumsy/immature pickup skills, and want a real result quickly. I don't have the patience to go through the processes to get a girl, once my libido goes down to a certain level, I lose the motivation to continue the game. So in a word, when my libido is on, I want to get a girl as soon as possible, and when my libido is off, I don't want to pick up girls or learn pickup skills simply because I want to avoid the hassle.
My motivation is impeded by the perceived difficulty of picking up girls. However, if I am equipped with better pickup skills, then it can lower the perceived difficulty of picking up girls, so my motivation to pursue girls will be stronger.
