You like doing the exciting work of initial design and implementation but not the drudgery of maintenance? Congrats you are just like every other human. That's like saying you enjoy falling in love but don't want any long term relationships.

It's not exactly the case here. Going through periods of maintenance is totally normal, but no one with ambition would accept to do only this work, especially if it's not your work.
