- make myself spend 15 minutes doing what needs to be done. sometimes I decide to keep going until it;s almost done and sometimes all I can muster is 15 but eventually it all gets done on time
- indulging in some escapism for a few hours. that can be anything from video games to books, movies or playing around indoors or outdoors. I sometimes find that by first fully charging my fun batteries helps when i need to focus on duties and chores
- examine what it is i have to do. if it's something that i chronically have issues with doing then i either decide to not do them or i look for ways to make it more into something i do want to do. for instance, i hate to clean. i make myself keep my place relatively neat by having friends over every other week.
- leave it until the last possible minute. having the fire of time lit under your ass is an excellent motivator.
- Sleep if it's a problem.
- Something to clear my head.
- Chillax for a couple hours.
- Find a fun or relaxing way to do what you have to do. Turning things into games is usually the only way I can get my work done, or take work seriously.
1. Get in touch with your body. Try to slow down your mind.
2. Get lots of sleep. Sleep has amazing restorative powers that are beyond compare. Turn off your phone and alarm and just get some good deep sleep.
3. Spend some time talking with calm, positive people.
"Create like a god, command like a king, work like a slave."
- Refuel as efficiently as possible.
- Run on empty anyway. That's bad for the car, but a bit of repair can fix that.
- Wait till the last minute, when you get a miraculous second wind
- Give up, and not get to the destination.
The way I think about motivation is that I don't have to like whatever I'm doing. I just have to, somehow, find the part of myself that likes it (too often, the part of me that's a masochist)
You don't have to go far, or to any great destination, just get to a different scene for a few hours.

"I've never seen a child who didn't want to build something out of blocks, or learn something new, or try the next task. And the only reason why adults aren't like that is, I suppose, that they have been sent to school and other oppressive institutions which have driven that out of them."
